Hamilton, Ontario -- May 20, 2014 -- CARSTAR Automotive Canada has announced the opening of two new CARSTAR locations in Manitoba. Winnipeg Chevrier, located at 1106 Chevrier Boulevard in Manitoba and CARSTAR Stonewall. Both locations are owned by long-time CARSTAR franchise partners Dan Jonsson and Skye Houston.
Both locations are fully equipped collision centres and I-CAR Gold Class certified. The repair centres use the latest technology and equipment which includes Mitchell Repair Centre, in order to repair their customersâ€™ vehicles right the first time.

The co-owners were already Multi-CARSTAR Store Owners with three stores to their name. They felt it was the right time to expand the CARSTAR brand even further.
â€œCollision service is purely a retail experience now,â€ said co-owner Dan Jonsson. â€œWe wanted to increase convenience for customers, while increasing brand awareness for CARSTAR Collision and Glass centres.â€
This kind of strategy has proven beneficial for Jonsson and Houston. All of their stores had an NPS of 100 precent last month. Skye Houston remarked that, â€œ65 percent of the work that we receive is referral based. Customers know they can trust us and the CARSTAR brand.â€
Jonsson, Houston and their team are very involved in the local community. The franchise partners sponsor community sports teams and are members of the Rotary Club. They also participate in â€œSoaps it Up,â€ an annual event that raises funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, CARSTARâ€™s national charity of choice. Furthermore, the team supports their local Boys and Girls Club chapters.
