BURNABY, B.C., April 26, 2016 – After nearly a quarter century as an integral part of the Burnaby community, Destination Toyota is celebrating the beginning of an exciting new era with the grand opening ceremony of a new 90,000-square-foot dealership at 4451 Still Creek Drive.
“The hiring of 40 new employees brings our total team to about 100 dedicated professionals,” said Aziz Ahamed, Dealer Principal. “Through their efforts, and thanks to a range of exciting new features at our new location, Destination Toyota will be able to take the service we provide to our loyal customers to a whole new level.”
Highlights at the site include 28 service bays with sophisticated repair and diagnostic equipment available, an ultra-modern car wash facility, a full-service body shop, and a dedicated parts & tire centre.
“This is a very exciting time for all the associates who work at Destination Toyota, all of the dealership’s customers, and the Burnaby community as a whole,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Sales, Toyota Canada Inc. “While Destination Toyota staff will be able to serve customers in new ways, what will remain the same is the great Toyota vehicles the dealership offers and its impressive commitment to philanthropy across the Lower Mainland.”
These initiatives includes support for initiatives such as the World Partnership Walk, the Weekend to End Breast Cancer, Harmony Arts Festival, and B.C. Senior Games, as well as organizations like the Canadian Red Cross, Make-A-Wish ® Canada, BC Professional Fire Fighters Association, BC Women’s Hospital and Health Centre Foundation, and Family Services Greater Vancouver.
