LAVAL, Quebec -

Dilawri Group of Companies has added its first Lexus dealership.

And its first store in the Laval market.

The automotive group announced Wednesday it purchased Lexus Laval in Quebec, putting Dilawri’s dealership count up to 75.

The store, located at 2000 Boulevard Chomedey in Laval, was founded in 1996 and includes a 10-vehicle showroom and a two-vehicle delivery area.

Lexus Laval also includes 11 mechanical service bays and an indoor service drive-through.

“We are proud to welcome Lexus Laval, the dealership staff and all of the clients to Dilawri,” Nick Avdeliodis, Dilawri’s vice president of operations, said in a news release. “Not only is this the first Lexus dealership for our group, but also our first dealership located in the Laval market.

“With existing operations in Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Dorval, Verdun, Saint-Leonard and St-Bruno, we are well positioned to service clients across the entire Greater Montreal area,” Avdeliodis said.

“We look forward to a bright future with Lexus Laval and establishing the Dilawri brand in this market.”
