Sytner Group, the UK’s leading automotive retailer, has today announced the opening of the biggest BMW/MINI dealership in the country.
The new store, located in Sheffield just 1 mile from the Meadowhall Shopping Centre, is the largest project ever undertaken by the company and extends to over 200,000sq ft of indoor space – that’s around 5 acres!
Sytner Sheffield Managing Director Nigel Marsh said:
"My loyal team have been looking forward to moving into our outstanding new facility, and the smile on their faces as they work within it makes the wait well worthwhile. We have members of the team who have been with us over 45 years, embracing change like the newly employed graduates.”
The dealership is arranged over 3 floors with new and used display space for over 140 BMW’s and 110 MINI’s giving customers an unparalleled viewing and buying experience. The showroom also houses the UK’s first dedicated ‘M Sport’ zone, a host of specification lounges and four private handover bays.
Service customers checking in or collecting their car are greeted in a 4 lane drive-in reception whilst at the heart of the business is a fully serviced ‘Barista’ coffee bar and lounge serving complimentary drinks and snacks, adjacent to a fully stocked accessory store.
The aftersales accommodation includes a 42 bay, fully equipped state of the art workshop with 3 MOT bays plus a 15,000 sq ft bodyshop with 3 paint ovens.
Sytner were recognised in 2017 by the Sunday Times as the UK’s No. 1 Best Company to Work For, and as well as creating an outstanding working environment, the new facility also provides colleagues with fully fitted ‘Health-Club’ standard lockers, changing and shower facilities and a relaxing staff lounge.
Speaking as the first customers began to arrive at the facility, Sytner Group CEO Darren Edwards said “Sytner Group’s latest BMW and MINI facility once again sets the standard for automotive retailing in the UK with truly world class colleague and customer environments. I’m delighted to be able to welcome both loyal and new customers to experience these wonderful products in this amazing setting”
