M&P Mercury Sales Ltd. has announced that it will be opening a location on Vancouver Island in Nanaimo, BC. The new location, scheduled to open in March, will be a showroom displaying models from M&P Mercury's Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Bayliner and Trophy boat lines.
"Vancouver Island has always been a very important market to M&P Mercury,' stated President Bob Pappajohn. "We are excited for the opportunity to better represent our brands to our Island clientele in such an optimal location.'
The Nanaimo store is the dealership's fourth location. M&P Mercury Sales operates dealerships in Burnaby and Vancouver, and a service centre in North Vancouver.
Dave Boxrud, who has 30 years sales experience, has been appointed Store Manager of the Vancouver Island Store. "I am very proud to be a member of the M&P team as we officially bring Brunswick Boats back to Vancouver Island,' Dave commented, "I look forward to offering island residents an excellent selection of product to suit their boating needs and welcome current and prospective boaters to visit me at our new location and experience the professionalism and care you receive when you deal with M&P Mercury.'
Carly Robertson, M&P Mercury's Marketing Manager explained the some the reasoning for the dealership choosing to open a location on Vancouver Island. "Nanaimo has a rich boating history,' says Robertson. "A lot of our interest that we haven't been able to tend to comes out of Nanaimo. We also notice through our CRM (customer relationship management) software that a lot of people live in the Nanaimo area and we think it's time we represent our company and our brands more sufficiently there.'
An open house event will be held in March to mark the opening of the Nanaimo store.
M&P Mercury Sales is a Brunswick dealer carrying Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Hatteras, Meridian, Trophy and Bayliner.
