WHITEHORSE – Klondike Chevrolet is now under new, locally owned and operated ownership.
Justin Boucher, a veteran of car dealerships for almost 20 years, announced the purchase just under a year ago.
Having moved to the Yukon three years ago, Justin saw an opportunity to buy the dealership and seized it.
“My wife and I did our research and learned that Whitehorse is a great place to live and raise a family,” said Justin. “I was also really impressed with the thriving northern car dealerships.”
Asked what prompted him to buy Klondike Chevrolet Buick and GMC, which has been rebranded from Klondike Motors, Justin gives a number of reasons.
“Klondike Motors had a great reputation for customer service and treating staff well, which was obvious due to the length of time they stayed with the company. Several of the technicians have been with the dealership for 15 years or longer. That impressed me,” said Justin.
“It’s always been my feeling that employees should be treated like people, not numbers,” said Justin, adding that he has always seen the link between happy staff and happy customers.
Justin goes on to praise the Chevrolet product lineup, especially the redesigned GM Sierra as well as the Chevrolet Silverado, which he says “rides like a car but performs like a truck.”
Since the changeover, customers are also singing the praises of Klondike Chevrolet Buick and GMC, as demonstrated by a recent Google review by local Chelsea Wenzel.
“The whole team was wonderful. Justin went out of his way to find me the PERFECT truck with everything my heart desired! Thanks Everyone, I couldn't be happier.”
Klondike Chevrolet Buick and GMC is open Monday through Saturday.
