TOOMEY Motor Group’s brand new Nissan showroom is taking centre stage in Southend, showcasing the quality, technology and desirability of the Nissan range.
After a two-year project, Toomey Southend has opened its doors on The Toomey Automotive Retail Park, off Cherry Orchard Way, with a contemporary and beautifully designed environment and first-class customer service.
Entering the dealership, customers are greeted by a concierge service, where they can book in for appointments or make initial enquiries.
The new Nissan Qashqai, showcased under a canopy of light, is the first vehicle customers see as they enter the dealership, with the full range of models also on show in a bright and airy space.
Staff are on hand to assist customers and answer any questions, and use tablet technology to discuss vehicle options and go through the buying process in an informal, relaxed manner.
At the centre of the dealership is a spacious and comfortable area for families to relax during their visit, with hot and cold drinks and a play station to keep young children entertained.
Additionally, there’s an innovative design lab, where customers can explore the various personalisation options available across the range. Here, physical examples of trim and upholstery, and a touchscreen table, help customers visualise what their dream Nissan would look like in any colour combination.
Outside, there’s provision for EV charging and space for almost 100 new and quality approved used Nissans.
Lee Pembroke, Nissan Brand Manager, said: “Ever since we opened here in Southend, we’ve been sharing space with another brand. So to have our own stand alone dealership is wonderful, especially when it’s as stunning as this.
“It’s a wonderful space in which to conduct our work, and our customer feedback has been really positive so we know they are enjoying the Nissan experience as well. We’re really excited for the future as we settle in to our new home.”
