Toronto, Ontario -- January 8, 2019 -- CARSTAR St. Paul is officially open for business.
The new CARSTAR location, situated in St. Paul, Alberta, is owned and operated by father son duo Bernard and Joshua Michaud. Having purchased an independent shop back 1985, both Joshua and Bernard bring with them a wealth of industry knowledge and expertise.
Growing up in his father’s shop, Benard became a part-owner in the business back in 2016.
“Seeing the way the industry is moving, my father and I knew we would need to join a network but we wanted to make sure we partnered with a brand that would maintain our reputation,” says Bernard Michaud. “I am excited to be a part of the CARSTAR family because they have that top of the line image which aligns with what my dad has worked so hard to build here in St. Paul.”
The newly branded 8,000 square foot shop will offer full collision repairs as well as glass repair and replacement.
“When a family-run business, that has a longstanding local reputation, wants to join the CARSTAR team – it is incredibly encouraging to me because it means we are doing something right here,” says Mike Piper, western zone director of CARSTAR. “The CARSTAR team is dedicated to upholding our commitment to provide premier customer experiences as well as expert repairs, and it is because of hardworking people like Joshua Michaud that we are able to deliver on those promises.”
Having roots in St. Paul dating back to when Joshua opened his shop in 1985, the family-run business will continue to stay actively involved in the community. Both Bernard and Joshua are looking forward to getting involved with CARSTAR’s efforts towards raising money for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, while also continuing to provide sleigh rides for residents of St. Paul during the holiday season.
