PartSource has announced that it will be adding three new stores in Ontario this summer. Scheduled to open this summer, PartSource will introduce two 7,200 square foot stores in Windsor. One will be located on Tecumseh Road, west of Jefferson Boulevard, the other at Howard Avenue, south of Tecumseh Road. PartSource also plans to open one store in Barrie at Dunlop & Anne Streets. "We are excited to expand into two vibrant and innovative communities that support leading-edge retailing concepts like PartSource," says Bruce Allen, president, PartSource. "We want to be the most recommended automotive parts specialty store in Canada. Opening these stores is a significant milestone in our strategy to achieve that goal." These projects make an investment into each market of approximately $2 million per store and are the first to be built in their respective cities. Each new store will create about 15 new retail jobs. "These new stores offer an attractive opportunity for franchisees who love the automotive business and who are interested in using our successful PartSource concept to offer customers a highly customized shopping environment," says Allen. "We are looking for potential new franchisees who can contribute to PartSource’s success in these communities." PartSource is a chain serving do-it-yourself automotive enthusiasts and the wholesale automotive market (professional installers). Each store is staffed with experienced auto parts professionals and licensed automotive technicians who share the customer’s passion for cars and trucks.
