A well-known west London retailer is on the move after outgrowing its current home.
After 40 successful years based on Kings Street, Chiswick Volkswagen, is relocating to a new site at Gillette Corner on Great West Road, with the refit costing approximately £400,000 to complete.
As part of the relocation the retailer is looking to employ up to ten new staff and change its name to West London Volkswagen, reflecting the area it will occupy.
Chiswick’s and soon to be West London’s brand manager, Shaun Kirby said: “It is a very exciting time for everyone associated with the business.
“The new larger premise represents a huge investment in local people and provides a stable working environment for employees.
“We will be relocating in stages, with the full move complete by March.”
The 1300m², new site is twice the size of the old Chiswick site and initially will house four highly trained technicians. This is expected to grow to ten when the centre is fully up and running, with new jobs likely to be created.
Shaun added: “One of the most exciting changes about the move is the Gillette Corner site will offer the area a fully integrated state-of-the-art Volkswagen approved service and parts centre. Later on in the year the centre will also be able to offer MOTs to customers.
“The new showroom has a contemporary feel, allowing customers to view the full range of Volkswagen passenger vehicles in a friendly and relaxed environment.
“Customers will also have the option to browse over 35 used cars outside, whilst being protected from the weather by overhead canopies.
“I’m looking forward to seeing customers old and new at the new premises and hope to offer many years of good quality service as we did at our old home.”
The move will be finalised with a VIP event, which is scheduled for March.
