Nov 14, 2012
1948. The year the first monkey went to space. Burma gained its independence from the UK and Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated. Harry Truman won the US Presidential Election and Laurence Olivier’s Hamlet won the Best Picture Oscar. And, it was also the year that Mr Woodhouse and Mr Barton opened our first Sandicliffe service station. Having been a fixture in Loughborough since taking over Gillotts back in the mid 1960s, 2012 is a big year for us. After a £1 million refurbishment, our state of the art new premises open in November, giving you more choice of new and used cars, better service and, for the first time, a cup of freshly brewed coffee and some lunch. Reg Tutt, managing director of Sandicliffe, the leading East Midlands new and used car specialists, said: “We have come a long way since our humble beginnings. In the last sixty four years we’ve grown from being a small, two-man operation in Stapleford to recently appearing in the UK’s Top 250 companies list. “Loughborough has been an important location for us and we couldn’t have grown without the support and loyalty of all our local new and used car, service and commercial vehicle customers.” Since we opened our first garage in 1948 – coincidentally the last time the Olympic Games were in London – we have grown to become one of the country’s leading motor specialists.
The seven acre site in Loughborough has provided new and used cars, servicing, MOTs and repairs to Loughborough drivers for almost fifty years. Now, in the year the Olympics returned to London, the centre sees its biggest makeover. As well as offering bigger and better new car showrooms, our new Loughborough dealership will host all the latest 2013 Ford, Mazda and Nissan models. The state of the art interiors are cleaner and warmer and allow you easier access to the new cars. And, there’s also loads more parking at the site. In addition to superb new car facilities including a stylish and modern Nissan showroom, a brand new used car centre will offer you a superb choice of used models.
The site also features a superb used commercial vehicles centre, a specialist repair and bodyshop, budget tyres, an MOT centre and a leading parts department. Mr Tutt from Sandicliffe, the Nissan, Ford and Mazda experts, added: “We’ve designed our new Loughborough centre with you in mind. It’s easier to browse our choice of new and used cars, simpler to park and we can offer a bigger choice of models. “In addition, we’ve also opened our first on-site restaurant, Peppercorns. Whether you’re a Sandicliffe customer or you just fancy popping in for a cup of tea and a jacket potato, you’ll be able to enjoy great food and drink – all in the same place.”
