MG’s newest dealer has already taken orders

MG’s newest dealership, in the heart of the Scottish Borders, has already taken orders, just days after going live.

Central Garages in Galashiels is less than an hour’s drive from the centre of Edinburgh. The new dealership has just gone live, but has already taken a firm order for an MG3. 

Galashiels is expected to be a growth commuter town when the famous Waverley railway line to the Scottish capital is reinstated in September. Stuart Ormsby, Dealer Principal of Central Garages, says the dealership is perfectly positioned for future growth. He explained: “We are just five minutes from the railway station and our showroom looks out on the A72 main road to Edinburgh.

“All the major new retail shops in the town are around us, so we are in a textbook location for a car dealership, with a huge Halfords and B&Q store on our doorstep.

“As soon as people became aware that we had the MG franchise we started to get a lot of interest and we took our first order for an MG3 even before our signage and point-of-sale material were in place.”  

Central Garages has been trading since 1984 and has represented both Renault and Daihatsu. But winning the MG franchise has put a smile on Stuart’s face. He said: “There’s something special about MG and the brand is really going places now with the new MG6 and the MG3.

“People here look for value-for-money and the modern MGs certainly offer that. But they offer so much more – they look really good, have loads of space inside and are comfortable and fun to drive. I think MG has got the formula just right.”

Central Garages, in Island Street, Galashiels, has a tight-knit team of six people, although Stuart says additional staff may need to be hired if the MG franchise takes off in the way he thinks it will.

Stuart added: “I’ve got two new MG6 models, which really are great cars, alongside several MG3s. Although we’re selling cars now we’re planning an open weekend towards the end of next month so that we can really launch MG to the Borders.

“I know the reaction will be fantastic and I get the feeling that for many people, the new MG6 and the MG3, could be just the cars they’ve been waiting for.”      

As well as Galashiels, Central garages will serve many other key Borders towns including Kelso and Newtown St Boswells.
