HAVING finally been authorised to join their colleagues across the group’s England based stores in opening, Trade Centre Wales wasted no time in playing catch up, with 145 cars sold on opening day.
All three stores in Neath, Abercynon and Merthyr reported a strong demand from car shoppers taking advantage of the Emergency Car Clearance, the strongest ever campaign to be marketed by the retailer.
The clearance sees prices drastically reduced on reopening and Trade Centre Wales is offering up to £3,000 off every car, with this discount being applied to the majority of stock and no car reduced by less than £2,000.
Chief Executive Andy Coulthurst said: “We have cleared thousands of cars already in our England based Trade Centre UK stores and knew that Welsh car shoppers would be just as keen to snap up a bargain.”
“We have replicated our already tried and tested instore safety processes, creating what we believe is the safest place in Wales to buy a used car”
The Emergency Car Clearance is being promoted via a heavyweight media campaign
across TV, radio, outdoor and digital. Web traffic and online finance applications immediately trebled following the announcement on Friday that non-essential retail could reopen in Wales and customers queued outside ahead of opening at the two larger stores.
