News Release - New merchandise!

As well as a chance to see the archives, our Open Days are a chance to see the cars that turn up - on this occasion including Norman Adams' stunning 1932 Hillman Minx - and to catch up on the Trust's latest news.

Our recent Open Day on 10 June gave Friends of the Archive Centre, members of the Rootes car clubs and the wider public the chance to be the first to inspect our exciting new range of merchandise - "distinctive products for the discerning Rootes motorist."

"Rootes Service" returns!

Rootes Service was always the sign of quality and excellence in meeting the needs of the motorist, a brand you could rely on. Now the Rootes Archive Centre Trust is re-launching the "Rootes Service" symbol as the brand for our latest range of quality products with a motoring theme.

Thanks to a commercial partnership between the Trust and an innovative supplier of quality products with a motoring theme, we have launched an entirely new range of "distinctive products for the discerning Rootes motorist", all branded with the "Rootes Service" logo. The first products, launched at the Open Day, are a deluxe demister pad, and a range of garage jars, and tins to keep in the glovebox, all filled with a variety of traditional confectionery (see photographs). Priced very reasonably, these proved good sellers at the Open Day. You can see the full range on our Web site, http://www.rootesarchivecentre.org.uk.

As our advertising says, "It was always the sign of quality and excellence in meeting the needs of the motorist, a brand you could rely on. So look for the familiar logo, and know you are getting a first-rate product at a competitive price!"
