A NEW and improved car showroom has thrown open its doors in Nelson.

Motor sales giants Perrys has made a significant investment in its Lomeshaye Industrial Estate site.

And the revamp of the Churchill Way centre has led to several new jobs at the combined Citroen and Peugeot site, bringing the headcount up to 34.

Denise Millard, an executive director at Perrys, said: "The integrated site is great news for Nelson, securing and creating jobs. It also ensures customers can access great deals locally and benefit from a wealth of knowledge when it comes to quality repairs and peace-of-mind through excellent servicing."

The group, which has 50 dealerships up and down the country, has been around for more than 110 years.
