On Thursday, April 15th The Auto Gallery welcomed customers to its new Audi Showroom located in the luxury wing of Westfield Topanga, an upscale shopping center north of Los Angeles. The placement of an Audi showroom in such a retail location is a first for the brand in the United States. The event also featured the retail debut of the all-new 2011 Audi A8 flagship sedan and the R8 V10 Spyder.
Westfield attracts more than 12 million customers each year and the Auto Gallery selected the shopping center specifically for its high-end clientele.
“We wanted to take a creative approach to automotive retail,” said Tony Schwartz, owner of The Auto Gallery. “With our placement inside Westfield Topanga we are building awareness outside the typical automotive retail environment and attracting new customers. Westfield Topanga is a great partner and we are very please with the results we’ve seen so far.”
The dealership offers perks for customers through The Auto Gallery VIP appointment process, in which customers receive valet at the shopping center’s Neiman Marcus entrance and are greeted with refreshments at our Audi showroom.
“The Auto Gallery showroom marks an exciting and progressive addition to the luxury wing of Westfield Topanga,” said Westfield Senior General Manager Erick Klafter. “We are please to lead this initiative of offering shoppers one location to experience not only the finest fashion and accessories, but also high-end vehicles that embody the sophisticated lifestyle of our clients.”
The gallery-themed customer event featured the finest items in luxury automobiles, fashion, jewelry and technology. Guest celebrated the new location with a cocktail reception and were treated to sneak peeks of new designs and concepts from premiere brand partners, including the new iPad from Apple®, Cartier’s Calibre watch and jewelry, Neiman Marcus fashions and the Hugo Boss BOSS Black Spring Summer 2010 Collection. Gallery displays demonstrated how each brand fits in with Audi’s ideals.
“The new R8 Spyder and all-new A8 are perfect representations of the core values we align all our vehicles with - progress, sophistication and technological advancement,” said Mike Cagle, Regional Director for Audi of America’s Western region. “The Auto Gallery Audi location inside Westfield Topanga offers a great avenue for clients to experience the full Audi lifestyle though complimentary brands that share similar ideals.”
