$10 million, 32,000 square foot facility to employ 35
 
Toronto, ON (April 23, 2012) – It’s a rich wine region and getaway spot on the shores of Lake Okanagan – home of the legendary Ogopogo. And now, Canadians pursuing memorable moments in the Okanagan Valley gain their first Lexus dealership, as Lexus of Kelowna opens its doors on Highway 97 North.
 
“Kelowna is at the heart of British Columbia’s playground. It’s a region known as much for its year-round outdoor activities – from boating, biking and golf to skiing – as it is for award-winning, world-class wineries. As such, it’s a perfect location for us, as Canada’s newest Lexus dealership, to serve our guests,” noted Rick Sentes, Dealer Principal at Lexus of Kelowna. “With a team of 35 sales and service professionals, Lexus of Kelowna is ready to offer Canadian drivers our uniquely Lexus interpretation of contemporary luxury.”
 
Lexus of Kelowna represents a $10 million investment in advanced technology and personal attention to deliver a world-class experience. The brand new, 23,500 square foot facility features a two-vehicle delivery area, ten service bays and four detailing bays, with an 8,500 square foot mezzanine level.
 
Lexus of Kelowna will feature a full selection of Lexus vehicles in its nine-vehicle showroom – including the built-in-Canada Lexus RX 350 luxury SUV and the world’s most extensive line-up of powerful, efficient hybrids.
 
Lexus of Kelowna, part of the Sentes Automotive Group, is located at 2767 Highway 97 North, Kelowna BC, V1X 4J8.
