BURNABY, BC, (October 2, 2014) – Since 1992, Destination Toyota has been an integral part of the community, meeting the mobility needs of Burnaby and surrounding area drivers.
Now Destination Toyota is poised to take its success to even greater heights, with construction beginning Thursday on a new, three-level, 90,000-square-foot facility to be located at 4451 Still Creek Drive.
The new dealership, which will include at least 20 additional associates to its already 67 member team, will have special features such as a striking new showroom, a large service shop with 28 bays, an on-site body shop, an automatic car wash, a tire centre, and many other amenities to appeal to customers.
“Our loyal Destination Toyota customers in Burnaby will love the prominent location and so much more about this exceptional new facility,” said Aziz Ahamed, Dealer Principal. “This will be a vibrant, state-of-the-art dealership that will be welcoming and comfortable, a fitting thank you to the people of Burnaby who have been so supportive of our dealership for so many years.”
“For 22 years, great service has been at the heart of success at Destination Toyota,” added Seiji Ichii, President and CEO, Toyota Canada Inc. (TCI). “And with plans to open a facility that will allow the dealership to better serve the Burnaby community; the best is yet to come.”
To commemorate this important occasion, Destination Toyota will be holding the initial concrete pouring at the site on Thursday (October 2), with many special guests in attendance, including Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan, Members of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia Richard Lee and Kathy Corrigan, Toyota Canada Inc. (TCI) President and CEO Seiji Ichii, and Larry Hutchinson, Vice President of Sales at TCI.
