Huge New Motorcycle Clothing Superstore Opens in LowestoftThursday,14 Jul 2016
Lings Lowestoft in Suffolk was delighted to today host the official opening of the Hein Gericke Outlet store, the latest in the growing range of brands and products available at the Lings Riverside Road site.
The Hein Gericke Outlet is the single largest stockist of Hein Gericke products in the U.K., with over 4000 product lines available instore and online, it is the perfect one-stop shop for motorcycle riders of all ages and experience with a huge range of bike clothing including helmets, gloves and leathers, as well as rider essential accessories such as bike covers, stands and luggage.
Invited to cut the ribbon on the new Hein Gericke Outlet was Cabinet Member Councillor Frank Mortimer, pictured here with Lings Director Paul Barkshire and Hein Gericke Outlet Manager Laura Nettleingham.
"We’re absolutely delighted to have Hein Gericke on board with us in Lowestoft.” Said Paul "As one of the world’s most trusted and recognisable brands in motorcycle gear Hein Gericke sits perfectly alongside our range of Honda, Triumph and Husqvarna motorcycle franchises and allows us to offer a comprehensive service to our motorcycle customers both old and new.”
The Hein Gericke brand has recently enjoyed massive investment after extensive restructuring, and is now relaunching in the UK with a new product range that remains true to the core ethos of the company – high quality, affordable and above all else safe motorcycle gear.
"The Hein Gericke range has a great reputation among bikers” said Outlet Manager Laura "it’s fantastic to bring this huge range to bikers on the east coast in our new Outlet store – and further afield on our website hein-gericke-outlet.com. We’ve already seen there is a huge appetite for the brand since we had our soft-opening last year - shipping across the country - we can offer the largest Hein Gericke range in the UK – and one of the largest in Europe – we can only see that appetite growing.”
For the wider Lings Motor Group, The Hein Gericke Outlet has been an excellent opportunity to make further use of the huge, state-of-the-art facility in Lowestoft. The entire first floor of the 48,000 square feet building has been dedicated to the Outlet store, which has also created several new jobs both on the shop floor and behind the scenes in the mail order department. This marks another step in the redevelopment of the Lowestoft site after the Tidal Surge 3 years ago devastated the business. Since suffering flooding in December 2013 the business has gone from strength to strength, welcoming the Mitsubishi car franchise into the fold (recently recognised as one of the top dealerships in the Mitsubishi Motors UK network), Triumph Motorcycles and recently Husqvarna Motorcycles. This was in addition to the sixty-year association with Honda and the MotorLings all make used car areas of the business.
Hein Gericke Outlet is now open on the First Floor of Lings Motor Group, Riverside Road, Lowestoft NR33 0TQ. Call 01502 507555 or visit www.hein-gericke-outlet.com for more.
