Parkgate Mobility has opened a new showroom in Retford in the East Midlands, bringing its portfolio of stores to 18.

The dealer is one of the most expansive mobility businesses in its local area, boasting more sites than most of its competitors.

Like all of Parkgate’s other stores, Retford lies along the spine of major north to south roads, which is a strategy the business uses to make logistics more efficient.

Locating stores along the M1 and A1 means its vans can travel between shops quickly and customers can be reached faster.

Store manager Ian Marshall will be responsible for the new shop in Retford, which will retail scooters, furniture, stairlifts and a host of other mobility aids.

Parkgate Mobility announced plans in March 2018 to bring its estate to 18 outlets and made adjustments to its business to allow it to scale up and remain consistent.

The dealer, which operates across Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, launched a new dedicated call centre at its Rotherham base and introduced a new retail platform, including a new stock control system.
