More than 200 guests joined JCT600 in Sheffield to celebrate the opening of its Mercedes-Benz showroom at Meadowhall following a £1m redevelopment.
The opening is the culmination of a five month project which sees the high profile Sheffield Road dealership undergo a complete internal refurbishment to incorporate the latest Mercedes-Benz branding and digital integration. Incorporating the Mercedes-Benz ‘boutique-style’ showroom design, it features a new dedicated AMG showroom, as well as luxurious areas where customers can relax in a lounge or work at a coffee bar and sales or service staff will come to them.
There is also a specially designed kids zone, complete with iPads and game station, a designated AMG Centre and a service facility. In addition, the ‘smart at Mercedes-Benz Sheffield’ showroom displays a wide range of cars from the smart brand.
The showroom features low cost and sustainable energy initiatives including a ‘smart’ wireless energy management system and LED lighting, in line with the company’s sustainability policy.
The extended Mercedes-Benz dealership offers a 20 new car showroom as well as display space for over 80 used vehicles.
