A Canadian auto retailer is growing its network of used-vehicle stores in Florida, and expansion to other states could be on the horizon eventually.
HGregoire, which has a string of used-car stores and new-vehicle franchised dealerships in Canada, plans to open its fourth and fifth U.S. stores under the HGreg.com brand this summer or early fall. The new locations are in North Miami, a store that will carry 600 vehicles, and in Orlando, a store that will sit on 15.5 acres near Orlando International Airport and eventually could carry 2,000 vehicles.
"Orlando is our largest store yet," John Hairabedian, president of family-operated HGreg.com in the U.S. and HGregoire in Quebec, told Automotive News. "We believe it will be our most successful yet."
