As well as selling the brand-new models in the Mercedes-Benz range, we will be offering aftersales services to the current Mercedes-Benz drivers in the region.

The showrooms in the new state-of-the-art dealership will have space to display up to 15 cars. The premises will also house a customer reception and individual sales offices.

The facility will also have a 10-bay workshop featuring the most state-of-the-art equipment including four-wheel alignment and the latest diagnostic computers.

It will also have a pre-delivery inspection centre, an extensive parts and accessories department and sales counter. The dealership will also have innovative private customer work stations, which would include desks, free Wi-Fi, charging points and allow customers to do work while their car is being worked on.

Located to service customers across the North West, the opening of the new dealership in Sligo will extend the number of Mercedes-Benz main dealers nationwide to 14.

Neil Connolly said: “We are delighted to be appointed to represent a brand such as Mercedes-Benz. The creation of another 20 new full-time jobs in Sligo is a source of pride for Kevin and I as we expand the Connolly Motor Group in the North West.

“We are also happy to be breathing new life into a building that had been lying vacant in Collooney. It is also a great sense of pride that one of the first thing visitors will see driving into Sligo is a brand such as Mercedes-Benz as it shows great confidence in the county and the region.

“We are looking forward to welcoming existing Mercedes-Benz owners into our dealership for servicing as well as those thinking about investing in a Mercedes-Benz for the first time.

“Our appointment comes at a pivotal period in our development and at an exciting point in the history of Mercedes-Benz as their model range expands to appeal to an even younger generation of motorists” Mr Connolly added.
