WINNIPEG, MAN. About 200 people were in attendance for the official opening of the Dilawri Groups new Crown Toyota Scion, Manitobas first Scion store.
On hand to cut the ribbon were Ashok Dilawri, Dilawri Groups founder and CEO; his wife, Annu; Mayor Sam Katz; Dilawri Group president Glen Daman; and Toyota Canada zone manager Steve Pedretti.
The new store, located in the Manitoba Auto Mall in southwest Winnipeg, opened for business in early March.

The Dilawri Group currently also includes flagship store Winnipeg Honda, Crown Acura, Crown Nissan, Automax (a pre-owned vehicle showroom), WAM Collision, D-Max (detailing centre) and GAS Performance (a specialty aftermarket and performance accessory showroom) at the Manitoba Auto Mall, Crown Mazda near the Perimeter Highway and Crown Honda.
