A new era will dawn at Grand Prix Mazda Caboolture this month when major upgrades are unveiled.
The dealership’s showroom at Spitfire Ct, Caboolture has been extended for more eye-catching displays of the latest car models.
A car delivery bay has been built to help make a show of presenting vehicles to new owners.
Grand Prix Mazda Caboolture has also extended the service workshop and a new coffee shop will open as part of the upgrades.
“We can’t wait to show everyone,” Dealer Principal Jake Camilleri said, “we’ll get everything bedded down this month and have an official opening in January.
“It has been two years since the start. We have been working out of a demountable and a marquee for 10 months on hot days, cold days … and wet days.”
Work started, under a dealer agreement, just before COVID arrived last year when new car sales were on the decline.
“But the next month things started to pick up,” Mr Camilleri said, “and since then they have increased and increased.
“We’ve had challenges every day with COVID regulations, social distancing, the weather, looking after customers and meeting expectations.
“Our staff have been magnificent, working through all this and now we’re looking forward to welcoming our customers with the service we are known for.”
Grand Prix Mazda Caboolture opened in 2002 as a joint dealership with Grand Prix Mazda Aspley.
The dealerships split in 2019. The following year Grand Prix Mazda Caboolture was Master Mazda Dealer of 2020.
“That’s something we’re aiming to achieve again,” Mr Camilleri said.
