WATCH: After more than 36 years, ownership of Saunders Subaru is changing hands
Started by Bob and Norma Saunders in 1980, the pair are now in their 80’s and still go to work every day.
They’ve now sold the business to Jim Pattison and his auto group.
All the employees will remain at the West Shore location, and the company’s community work will continue.
“That was part of the agreement that things stay status quo. We met with Mr. Pattison. I have a great deal of respect for him. He agreed to absolutely everything, and so we’re satisfied that it’s business as usual: staff retained, treat our customers well, all the community involvement,” said Dave Saunders.
The official transfer of the business takes place August 22nd.
