GUELPH, Ontario -

A new 22,000-square-foot facility set to be opened in Guelph, Ontario by year-end will serve as a Pfaff Automotive Partners Subaru dealership.

Pfaff Automotive Partners recently held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new dealership location that included attendees such as Mayor of Guelph Cam Guthrie, Subaru representatives and other community partners.

The new Guelph dealership that Pfaff has broken ground on is being constructed in the north end of the city at 12 Wilbert Street near Woodlawn Road and Elmira Road.

Pfaff Automotive said that the new dealership will provide more options for Guelph residents on top of its already existing dealerships that are located in the area.

Pfaff Automotive’s Guelph-based Subaru dealership will bring a total of 25 jobs to the area, and there may be room for more employment growth in the near future, the company said.
