Euan Lindsay. development manager with St Modwen, said: ³Securing the Lexus dealership is another vote of confidence in the Trentham Lakes development and it is very pleasing to welcome this prestige marque.

³This will be a top quality showroom befitting the Trentham Lakes development. The clustering of five dealerships is very sustainable, enabling customers to view a number of car makes in a single trip.²

Simon Pinkstone, managing director of Pinkstone Cars, said: ³We are delighted to be relocating another one of our motor retail businesses to Trentham Lakes.

³Since relocating our Toyota business in 2004, the area has been transformed beyond recognition, with many other motor retailers now operating in the same vicinity. This makes Trentham Lakes a real one-stop destination for customers wanting to evaluate a range of quality new and used vehicles, all within close proximity.

³With the introduction of our prestigious new Lexus facility next year, which is one of only 53 Lexus Centres nationally, we hope to further enhance the averall appeal of the area.²
