CALGARY, AB., (May 8, 2014) – With a state-of-the-art facility that reflects Lexus’ passion for amazing design, Lexus of Royal Oak Calgary  is hosting a grand opening event on Thursday, May 8 with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony. 
 
The new dealership – located at 7677 - 112 Avenue NW, just off Calgary’s Stoney Trail in the city’s Northwest Auto Mall – provides Lexus Guests in Calgary, Springbank, Bearspaw, Cochrane, Banff, Canmore, Chestermere, Airdrie and Red Deer with a convenient location for purchasing, leasing or servicing their Lexus vehicles.  
 
Spanning 45,000 square feet, the facility is among the first in Canada to incorporate Lexus’ new global Platinum brand standard.
 
“This amazing facility is all about progressive luxury so it represents the essence of the Lexus brand,” said Seiji Ichii, President and CEO of Toyota Canada Inc. “Everything at the dealership was created with Guest convenience and comfort as the priority.”
 
For example, the lounge offers different environments to provide Guests with a range of appealing options to make any time they spend at the facility as pleasurable as possible. A drive-thru provides direct entry into the service shop, to enable optimally efficient service. There’s even a special “Royal Treatment” rewards program that includes offering Guests a complimentary manicure or pedicure as they wait while their vehicle is being serviced.
 
The site includes a 20-vehicle showroom, 18 service bays, an eight-bay auto spa for detail work, and a separate car wash building with two interior bays. Environmentally-friendly construction highlights include the use of specially-insulated wall panels, LED lighting, plenty of glass to take maximum advantage of natural light, and the introduction of a new Molec waste system that utilizes the latest waste management technology.
