Their choice to return to Cardiff demonstrates the increased popularity of showrooms within a shopping centre environment and this combined with the footfall and the strong catchment St David’s already attracts, enables Mercedes to sit comfortably with other thriving retailers at the destination.”

The Mercedes-Benz pop-up follows other popular car manufacturers showcasing at St David’s including, celebrated British car brand, MG Motors, and its first retail boutique experience outside London last year.
