A city car dealership is to make a six-day opening pattern permanent.


Bowker BMW and MINI showrooms in Preston began to close on Sundays during May.

The firm now say the move, which has been popular with staff and customers, is to become the norm with Monday to Saturday being its operating days.

John Nichol, for Bowker Motorrad at the Docks, said: “The decision by Bowker BMW and MINI to close on Sundays has been well received by both employees and customers. That has made it easier to introduce the new six-day opening at Bowker Motorrad as well.


“Bowker Motorrad’s customer experience remains a priority, too. We believe that scheduling an extra day off will contribute positively to performance. We hope customers will enjoy the associated benefits of improved staff wellbeing too.

“This change isn’t just about our employees; it’s also a nod towards greater sustainability. Reduced operational hours mean lower energy consumption, complementing our ongoing commitment to reducing our carbon footprint. As the six-day week becomes a permanent feature at Bowker Motorrad, it reminds us that we’re not just selling motorbikes; we’re also honouring values that balance work and leisure, customer satisfaction, and a sustainable future.”
