When it comes to buying a new set of wheels, it pays to stay local.
“When you purchase here, it’s a one-stop shop, not only when you buy, but for all your follow-up needs, from servicing to parts and accessories,” explains Carson Grant, general manager for Chilliwack’s O’Connor Chrysler. “You’re also supporting a local business that gives back to the community.”
“There’s a perception out there that you’ll get a better deal if you make the trek into the city,” Grant says. “But in fact, with lower overhead and the relationships we’ve built, we can offer better savings, meaning you don’t need to waste the time and gas!”
Grant’s aim for his O’Connor team is simple: “From the sales floor to the service department, our goal is to deliver a world-class experience.”
Building a team that supports that vision is key, and in recent months O’Connor has welcomed several new professionals who are fully invested in that approach, Grant says, pointing to team members like Service Manager Sheldon Gailing – easy to talk to and committed to transparency in the service experience.
While Grant acknowledges that transparency and the auto industry don’t always go hand-in-hand in customers’ minds, his team is committed to just that approach.
“Good business comes from within,” he says.
Sales rep Stacey Seniuk is another great example. “He’s the type of guy we build our team around. If someone comes in with a flat, he’s the first one out the door to help get them back on the road.”
Building a successful business isn’t only about financial profits. “We also work hard to give back to the community,” Grant says.
Just like this month’s Christmas On Us event.
Anyone who purchases a new or pre-owned vehicle from Oct. 1 to Dec. 15 will have a chance to win a $10,000 cash – just in time for Christmas!
What could make that even better? How about another $10,000 donated to the Chilliwack Children’s Foundation, which provides medical, dental, education and wellness necessities for children in need.
Join the O’Connor team from 4 to 7 p.m. Dec. 21 to visit with Santa, enjoy some seasonal celebrations and watch the draw live!
