Jeremy Phillips, Brand Manager at Sinclair Volkswagen in Swansea, said: ‘The evening was a fantastic way of thanking everyone for their hard work and patience while the new showroom was built. It’s taken almost three years of planning and construction but it has definitely been worth the wait. I’m delighted that so many people joined us to celebrate our ‘Big Night Out’ and hope that they thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the chance to get a sneak preview of the new facilities here on Langdon Road.’

The conceptual new building not only supports the brand’s new look, but also offers customers a contemporary shopping environment that is light, airy and relaxing.
Jeremy added: ‘Throughout the construction programme, our aim has been to improve and enhance our customers’ retail experience. Operating from a truly world class retail outlet, it is now the intention of every member of the Sinclair Volkswagen Swansea team to deliver the levels of service that match our working environment.’
