Taggarts Glasgow celebrates its first birthday in its new showroom

Taggarts Glasgow celebrates its first birthday in its new showroom

A Volvo retailer in Glasgow is celebrating a 32 percent increase in sales since opening its impressive new showroom one year ago.

Taggarts Glasgow relocated from Maryhill Road to a new purpose-built dealership on Mossland Drive, Hillington, in January 2018.

The retailer has seen sales increase by 32 percent year on year, since moving to the new location and has been crowned the most improved sales dealer for the first six months of 2018.

The showroom is complete with Scandinavian furniture, free Wi-Fi, Swedish cakes and coffee. Large exterior and interior glazing also allows customers to see all activity taking place in the new workshops, from, what feels like, the comfort of their living room.

Since the new showroom opened its doors last year, Taggarts Glasgow has created 12 new jobs - increasing the total staff head count by 36 percent. The retailer has also added a business sales centre to support the local business community with fleet vehicles.  

Other highlights include inviting a local Volvo owners club to bring their classic cars to the retailer and climbing ‘The Cobbler’ in the Southern Highlands raising £610 for the BBC’s annual telethon, Children in Need.

Derek Muir, Head of Business at Taggarts Glasgow, said: “We have achieved so much in a year, from sales successes to charity fundraising, and it would not have been possible without the dedication of our team.

“Everyone always goes above and beyond to give our customers the best service possible - I really couldn’t ask for any more. Our 29,000 ft showroom, which is split over two floors and has 14 workshop ramps, has helped us exceed our sales targets and has made our showroom much more inviting.

“We are pleased that our hard work has paid off and we cannot wait to see what 2019 has instore for us!”
