South coast-based Hendy Group will re-open its showrooms from June 1st.
The motor group plans to open the majority of its showrooms, prioritising the dealerships where social distancing guidelines can be followed most effectively. Currently branches that will not be opening on 1st June include Ford Tonbridge, Toyota Christchurch, Hyundai Salisbury, Mazda Eastbourne, Mazda Crawley, Suzuki Crawley, Suzuki Havant and MG Poole.
Hendy has introduced a number of changes to its showrooms including the introduction of clear signage, protective screens and hand sanitizing stations to ensure the safety of customers and colleagues.
The Group has seen high demand from customers throughout the strict lockdown period. Chief Executive Paul Hendy said: "We have worked hard to ensure the showrooms are in keeping with the Government guidelines on social distancing and we have been thorough in our approach bringing in all the necessary changes.
"We have seen an incredibly high volume of enquiries from customers through our digital channels while our physical dealerships were closed. We're looking forward to welcoming customers back through our doors and continuing to deliver a premium experience in person."
