(PRWEB UK) 1 February 2013
The Mayor of Bicester, Councillor Dan Sames, took time out of his busy schedule to officially open a new business in the town last week.
The new garage on Telford Road Trade Park in Bicester has created six jobs and is the latest to be opened by the national car repair, servicing and MOT provider – bringing its UK network to 272.
In addition to creating jobs in the town, Halfords Autocentres has made a six-figure investment in acquiring and equipping the centre – and is set to contribute a further £15,000 per month to region’s economy by purchasing other consumables from local suppliers.
As a business Halfords Autocentres bringing clarity to the process of using garages by eliminating the jargon frequently spoken by mechanics to motorists - with nine out of ten car owners saying they are left bewildered by terminology used by garages.
Halfords Autocentre is therefore championing the use of ‘plain English’ and its Glossary of Garage Speak – an easy to understand guide of motoring industry terms – is available free of charge from the garage.
Darren Price, Regional Manager, Halfords Autocentres, comments: “We have a terrific opportunity in Bicester to build the business by offering Bicester motorists a reputable brand delivering main dealer quality at more affordable prices, something that is resonating strongly in these tough economic times.”
Mayor Dan Sames commented: “It was an honour to open the new Halfords Autocentre. It’s good to see a business expanding and the facilities at the garage are second to none. I spent some time with all the technicians and they’re a really enthusiastic and friendly bunch, eager to do a good job for the people of Bicester. I wish them luck with their new business.”
Dan Price continues: “This investment gives us a fresh, purpose-built space, equipped with the very latest technology and tools to enable us to service all makes and models of cars, old and new. It puts us in the very best position to meet the local demand from motorists looking for a better deal.”
