From Aldi Supermarket to Car Supermarket   The Transformation Begins

Work is now underway on a half a million-pound refurbishment project in Rochdale to transform a former Aldi supermarket site into one of the North West’s most cutting edge used car dealerships.

 

Independent used car business Cartime announced in July that it had exchanged contracts on the Edinburgh Way premises in a £1.6 million deal, which will create 25 jobs for the local area, and the re-fit has now started. Cartime is hoping to open its doors in Rochdale in January 2019.

 

With exciting new features and facilities, the new 1.6 acre dealership is promising to raise the bar when it comes to the used car buying experience. The new sales centre will feature a state-of-the-art vehicle display for when customers come in to collect their vehicle. The display allows customers to view their new purchase in great detail before driving away. The sales centre will also feature zoned customer areas and an in-house coffee shop-style experience. Electronic screens showcasing cartime’s latest offers and vehicles will also be installed throughout.

 

Cartime in Rochdale will hold more than 200 vehicles on the site, with more available online and via its two Bury sales centres.

 

"We have always strived to do things differently to other used car dealers and this new showroom will set us even further apart from the competition."

Matt Kay, Cartime Managing Director (pictured), said: “We have always strived to do things differently to other used car dealers and this new showroom will set us even further apart from the competition."

 

“Investing in technology and the latest innovations to offer the very best customer experience is at the heart of what we do, and this new brand new site gives us the opportunity to drive this model forward even further."

 

“It is an extensive site and will house more than 200 high quality, prestige used cars – most of which will be handpicked by myself. We look forward to opening the doors to the new showroom in January and welcoming customers inside.”

 

Cartime is working with Bury firm Abode Architecture and Nobel Projects on the scheme
