Woolworths now sells carsHigh street chain says discounts will be huge

31 July 2006

High-street stalwart Woolworths has started selling cars at discounted prices.

The chain, more usually associated with selling pick ‘n’ mix sweets, CDs and toys, has launched a special site offering the service and says that in the coming months it will offer thousands of brand new cars on deals well below manufacturers' list prices.

It's already offering a Nissan Almera 1.5 S5, for example, at £3,631 less than Nissan's price of £11,200. There’s an even bigger discount on the £16,796 Hyundai Coupe 2.0 SE 3DR - it's £4,636 below the manufacturer's price.

Woolworths has teamed up with Royal Bank of Scotland to offer the service and is promising that cars will be delivered direct to a customer’s door within an average of ten weeks after ordering.

A spokesperson said: ‘People may not expect to find Woolies selling cars, but our multi-channel offer is expanding at a rapid pace and offering many non-traditional Woolworths products at market-beating prices.’
