Award-winning Vauxhall dealer Arthurs, with branches in Oswestry and Newtown, is heading for an all-time record March.

With its target for sales of the new 17 plate 95% complete, Arthurs say its buoyant order book is bucking the trend in the market place as a whole.

Said General Manager David Goldthorpe: “Factors which we believe are contributing to a record-breaking March include our fifth successive annual Customer Excellence Award.

“This is a real coup for Arthurs because our closest competitors have not achieved this award which has gone down really well with our customers.

“In addition, we have a team of dedicated new car sales specialists headed by Craig Huxley at Oswestry with 20 years industry experience and Andrew Richards at Newtown with seven years.

“They are providing a great amount of expertise and skill, exceptional levels of customer service and a critical amount of product knowledge when customers visit both dealerships with a view to buying a new Vauxhall.

“We are fortunate to have very settled teams and sales managers at Oswestry and Newtown and this stability is also key to having a very strong order book.”

He added that both branches were very active on social media. “We have increased our exposure on Facebook which includes engaging more with other local businesses.”
