LSH Auto UK has officially opened the UK’s first Mercedes-Benz Autohaus in Stockport, Greater Manchester.
LSH Auto UK is part of the world’s largest Mercedes-Benz dealership, and it has just officially opened the UK’s first ever Mercedes-Benz Autohaus, a dedicated retail space forming part of the brand new Stockport branch which is now open.
The dealership has completely regenerated the site off Brighton Road, Stockport, into a state-of-the-art, three storey facility, forming LSH Auto UK’s Mercedes-Benz hub for the entire Manchester area.
John Stanton, General Manager at Mercedes-Benz of Stockport, said: “We’re really excited to be officially open and welcoming customers through the doors. Mercedes-Benz of Stockport is a landmark destination in its own right. We have a really unique customer offering here that will be a game-changer for automotive retailing as we know it. Everything we provide here is about being unique and distinct, we want to see the space used in innovative ways and look forward to showcasing its endless possibilities.”
Mercedes-Benz of Stockport is spread over 10.5 acres, complete with distinct and innovative features like a brand-new bistro, dedicated event facilities and garden, as well as a sleek-designed dealership space showcasing 140 vehicles. It will also incorporate a dedicated AMG suite and display 100 approved used Mercedes Benz vehicles in a purpose-built indoor showroom.
The flagship site has two buildings: The Autohaus is a 13,492sqm showroom, a retail space for new and used cars with an aftersales facility. The 17,166sqm Body, Paint and Repair Centre is a purpose-built, high-tech space which will also operate LSH Autohaus UK’s regional Used Car Preparation Facility and Parts Distribution Centre.
This is the first Mercedes-Benz showroom to offer a fully-licensed in house bistro which will be serving refreshing light bites for breakfast and lunch including paninis, specialty cakes and pastries and a selection of wine and craft beers. The new hospitality concept will also have its very own dedicated Hospitality Manager, Tom Smith, previously Bar and Tea Room Manager at The Midland Hotel.
The modern space can also be hired for private events and meetings, with the facility boasting multiple meeting rooms, including a cinema-style meeting room which are all available for private hire. Stockport’s Mercedes-Benz Autohaus even holds an event license for exclusive late-night events, including a car registration change event, which will be hosted twice a year at the site. The flagship branch will be unveiling an exciting calendar of events to be held there throughout the year.
The site also sees the innovative use of green spaces, including a living green wall and a contemporary water feature, with further extensive landscaping creating an attractive garden, as well as an outdoor roof terrace complete with plush furniture and views across Stockport.
