Thurlow Nunn’s VIP city launch

Long-established, family-owned and managed Thurlow Nunn celebrated the official opening of its new Norwich Vauxhall dealers with a special VIP launch evening.

Thurlow Nunn now has 10 Vauxhall garages in East Anglia at Beccles, Dereham, Diss, Fakenham, Great Yarmouth, Holt, King's Lynn, Wisbech and new operations in Norwich. It also has a specialist accident repair centre at Great Yarmouth and a Toyota franchise at St Ives in Cambridgeshire.

Thurlow Nunn is a brand name the family is immensely proud of and well established in East Anglia.

Even though John Thurlow has now retired from his day-to-day responsibilities, he retains an active interest and it retains its family values with loyal and committed staff, borne out by it having awarded more than 100 25-year long-service awards.

In February Thurlow Nunn added the Norwich market area to its motor dealer portfolio.
