CUSTOMERS of used car supermarket The Car People joined staff in celebrating the first birthday of the company's Warrington store.

The £6m showroom, on Calver Park Road at Winwick Quay, provided a boost to the Warrington economy when it launched in June last year, creating 115 jobs in a range of roles, including customer service, sales, preparation and administration roles.

Staff are said to have had a successful year, selling in excess of 3,500 used vehicles over the past 12 months, including 400 cars in March.

The team shared cupcakes with customers at the showroom's first birthday celebrations earlier this month, as they marked the end of a great year.

Robert Foster-Aspinall, sales manager at The Car People’s Warrington store, said: “Our new Warrington showroom has been open for a year now, and what a great year it has been. Nine years of planning went into opening the store, so to see it all come to life and be such a success is great to see.

“We’re extremely proud to have created so many jobs for the people of Warrington and everyone who works here has helped to create an amazing atmosphere in the showroom that makes it like no dealership I’ve ever worked at before."
