Corrie star opens Greenwood's new feature in style

Date published: 16 December 2020

After months of hard work, Oldham-based garage Greenwood Motor Services opened their new customer entrance in style, thanks to a celebrity appearance from Coronation Street’s own Asha Alahan - actress Tanisha Gorey.

Garage owner Scott Gurden was delighted with the grand opening, not least because it also saw three big winners of their GMS500 competition.

Greenwood customers won prizes of up to £500 worth of Love2Shop vouchers.

Tanisha did the honours as the draw was streamed live on Facebook.

Greenwood’s have been serving the Oldham and Greater Manchester area for decades, and offered free labour on all key worker vehicles during the height of the coronavirus pandemic back in Spring.

Scott (pictured above) said: ”It was the least we could do for the community.

"We felt that we needed to do our bit to keep our key workers moving.”

Customers have the added benefit of visiting a new customer service area, nestled right at the side of the garage on Lee Street, just outside of Oldham town centre, where they can drop keys off, chat about works needed and even have a quick brew.
