Mercedes-Benz dealership in Barrie breaks ground for new facility
Barrie, Ontario – Mercedes-Benz Barrie is relocating to a new property on Doral Drive. A ground-breaking ceremony took place a few days ago and dealer principal John Angelucci expects construction to be completed by late spring 2007.
The current facility located at 290 Yonge Street in Barrie has been the
home of Mercedes-Benz for more than two decades. Over the course of the last few years, the Greater Barrie Area has experienced tremendous growth. The Yonge Street dealership, with 8,500 sq. ft. and six service bays, has become too small to meet the needs of Mercedes-Benz customers in Barrie.
The new facility will be located at the southern edge of the Barrie area on Doral Drive, just off the Innisfil Beach Road exit, conveniently accessible from Highway 400. The 3.6-acre property and the new 27,500 sq. ft. building will be very visible from the busy 400 Highway.
This new state-of-the-art facility will feature a 16-car showroom, nine
service bays and three prep bays, and as is the case with all of the new
Mercedes-Benz dealerships built across Canada in recent years, will meet all of the global facility design standards and guidelines set by Mercedes-Benz.
