MONTREAL, QC., July 15, 2015 – After 25 years of proudly serving guests at its original location, Spinelli Lexus Lachine is about to begin a new chapter.
A brand new, state-of-the-art facility for the dealership will be built in the Montreal suburb of Lachine, located at 150 Boulevard Montréal-Toronto.
To celebrate work beginning on this spectacular new facility, a special groundbreaking ceremony will take place at the site on Wednesday, July 15.
“We have always been dedicated to providing service that exceeds our customers’ expectations, and this exciting new facility is sure to do that in many different ways,” said Pierre Spinelli, Dealer Principal. “We’re excited to open the doors for all guests to receive an amazing experience.”
Customers can expect some dramatic improvements when the dealership opens in the new year. The enhancements start with an expansion of the dealership facility from 11,000 square feet to a new facility covering 30,000 square feet, with another 135,000 square feet of land surrounding it. The dealership staff will also increase from 30 to 40 employees at the new location.
The building – which reflects the Japanese design concept of “takumi” (master craftsmen) – will also be at the leading edge of environmental sustainability, incorporating innovations such as a special heat recuperation system. All lighting will be compliant with Leadership in Energy and Design (LEED) standards.
Among the highlights for the new site, the service shop will house 13 bays, including two that feature express service for lube and tire work. All service will be made much quicker by the use of newest available technologies in the shop, such as shock-wave service lifts, and the latest alignment and balancing machines.
While guests wait, they can relax at the site’s Lexus Lounge, complete with barista service and refreshments, along with two television screens and iPads available for use. It will even have an aquarium for visitors to enjoy. For days with nice weather, there will be an outdoor terrace linked to the lounge, with comfortable chairs and quiet areas. People can also enjoy a lifestyle boutique and a dazzling new F Sport showroom.
The dealership’s new location will be conveniently located just 15 minutes from downtown Montreal and 11 minutes from the Montréal Pierre-Elliot-Trudeau International Airport. As a unique offer tied to that proximity, all Lexus guests will be able to enjoy free valet service to and from the airport. Their vehicles will be washed and safely stored while they are away.
In addition to the customer service history in their community, Spinelli Lexus Lachine’s longstanding history of supporting local charities will continue as strongly as ever. Over the last 25 years the dealership has provided more than $1.5 million in contributions to organizations such as the Lachine Hospital, Lakeshore Hospital, Centraide, West Island Community Shares, Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal (OSM), Concerts Lachine, Le Garde-Manger and local colleges.
