Change is underway at Westover Nissan on Wallisdown Road in Bournemouth. The busy showroom is being extended and fully refurbished, with work due to be completed at the end of June.
The finished showroom – which will remain fully operational throughout the build project - will be able to hold 14 new cars (previously it held a maximum of eight) meaning customers will be able to see a wider range of vehicles when they visit.
It also brings more spacious customer waiting areas, more car parking spaces and a larger and more efficient workshop.
“Westover Nissan’s Wallisdown showroom is one of the busiest Nissan showrooms in the UK but we’ve been operating from a relatively small space and we’ve simply outgrown it,” says Paul Hughes, Brand Manager for Westover Nissan.
“We’ve seen a steady increase in the size of our customer base over recent years as the line up of cars in the Nissan range and their popularity has gone from strength to strength.
“Despite the ongoing building work, it’s still very much business as usual here and we’re fully open for new and used car sales and all servicing, MOT and routine maintenance work is going ahead exactly as usual.
"We look forward to welcoming old and new faces alike to our new showroom and to offering visitors a more relaxed and enjoyable experience while they’re with us.”
Measures have been put in place to assist customers visiting the site during the refurbishment period, including a meet and greet car parking service.
Westover is investing significant sums in its Nissan site in Bournemouth in order to secure its future as an efficient and market-leading showroom. The extension also brings some local job opportunities – three additional technicians have already been recruited and other positions will become available in due course.
Westover Nissan in Bournemouth sells around 1,200 new and over 1,000 approved used cars each year, meaning it is continuously one of the top performing Nissan dealerships in the country.
