Ashington Launch Weekend Post Event Mutterings
Our recent ‘West’ branch Launch Weekend was a fantastic event, with a record number of people on site and caravans and motorhomes sold. The ‘Sussex Charmer’ Cheese on Toast went down a treat and it was great to have David & Gwyneth Bird (from The Caravan Club ‘Caravanner of the Year’) here – in fact David liked the new Coachman’s so much he ordered one!
The weather was less kind and I think we can now put the Sussex Caravan & Motorhome Centre Launch Weekend date as the official start of winter…only for it to pep up again afterwards!
Pretty much everything in our control couldn’t have gone better but like the weather our manufacturers were less predictable, with a last minute delivery of some of the models and some not arriving at all but at least the ones that were here, everyone thought simply stunning!
Slightly more concerning, the company responsible for our customer database mailshot have let us down to some degree – how much we don’t know. I personally did not get an invitation (there may be a message there to me) and over the weekend we had a few customers in contact to say they had not received an invite, or were sent a blank sheet! One customer commented he was concerned he had upset us and been struck off our mailing list – definitely not the case!
If you did not receive your invitation please do let us know, to give us an idea how many of you missed out. We sincerely apologise, however for anyone not having their invite, our manufacturers have generously extended the offers until Monday 17th October so there is still time to take advantage.
Without knowing the affected numbers we have been in two minds as to whether we should run the event again, or wait for our after Christmas Open Weekend – most likely on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th January, when at least we should have the full ranges to view but the way things are going I’m sure one or two models could easily be sold out for the year!
If you are maybe thinking of a new caravan or motorhome for any time next year, now is the right time to come down and see us for a coffee and a chat, just so we can make you aware of what’s available and when, and still take advantage of those Launch Weekend offers.
So, once again thanks for those that came to our event, for making it a wonderful success and our apologies again for those that did not get the invite.
We look forward to seeing you soon,
from all at Sussex Caravan Centre.
P.S. As a footnote, our Macmillan Coffee Morning (Sunday only) was a massive success with some wonderful cakes, made by our staff. The total raised was just under £150 so well done and thank you for those baking and eating!
