Dunlop Truck Centres-Lethbridge is having a grand opening under new ownership Aug. 16th. Canada’s second largest Western Star dealer is organizing a mini trade show in addition to an official ribbon-cutting ceremony, according to an announcement. There also will be a barbecue by donation with all proceeds going to the Lethbridge 4-H Club.
Approximately 20 vendors will be on site to showcase everything from the latest heavy truck parts to air ride suspension seats. The event is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at 4110 9 Ave N, Lethbridge, AB. Confirmed vendors include Shell Canada, Daimler Trucks North America (Alliance Products), Mascot Truck Parts, Phillips Industries and Howes Canada.
The dealership was recently acquired by Chris Thom, who rebranded his Rocky Mountain Diesel company in Cranbrook to a Dunlop Truck Centre following the acquisition.
“This event marks the launch of a new beginning for Dunlop Truck Centres in Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Cranbrook. With our focus on customer service and key locations along major transportation routes, Dunlop is in an excellent position to serve professionals in the heavy truck industry,” Thom says. “I hope to see many existing and new customers at our open house. Anyone is welcome to attend.”
