SHAWINIGAN, QC, April 19, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - H Grégoire, Canada's Car Superstore, announces the opening of a new franchise in Shawinigan. Opening on May 21st, H Grégoire Canada's Car Superstore Mauricie will be located at 7720 Des Hêtres Blvd. in Shawinigan.
"Since our first franchise opened its doors in 2009, our objective has been to serve our regional clientele's needs through franchises operations. It is our belief that a local team that is experienced and is already well rooted in its demographic is an advantage to confer the H Grégoire experience to our clients in the region. We are very happy to announce our partnership with Groupe Vincent, a highly dynamic and experienced team," explains Michelle Therrien, VP Marketing for the H Grégoire banner.
Groupe Vincent, owners of Hyundai Trois-Rivières, Avantage Honda Shawinigan and Prestige Mazda Shawinigan, is the newest proprietor of an H Grégoire franchise. The company's CEO Maxime Vincent, a well-known businessman of the region, explains: "We were approached by the H Grégoire group and, after several meetings that reassured us of the quality of H Grégoire's business practices; we decided to climb on board and join the country's leading used car sales team."
With a sales objective of more than 500 units per year, this new acquisition will enable Groupe Vincent to strongly position itself in the used car sales industry. The new Mauricie Car Superstore in Shawinigan will be located at the former Prestige Mazda building on Des Hêtres Boulevard and will facilitate access to more than 2,000 vehicles making up the impressive inventory of H Grégoire, available for viewing on www.hgreg.com.
"Given H Grégoire is synonymous with price, choice and quality, we want to consolidate our client services in the Mauricie region. The conversion of the corporate store in Trois-Rivières to an innovative franchise in Shawinigan thanks to the partnership of Groupe Vincent represents a solid step in the right direction," explains Pedro Lopez, Senior Manager, Franchise Operations and Development for H Grégoire. "Our franchisees are all very successful in their respective regions and now with Groupe Vincent, we are convinced that this affiliation will be very profitable for the district."
