On February 11, 2022, Mercedes-Benz Canada recognized Mercedes-Benz Oakville, Mercedes-Benz Newmarket and Mercedes-Benz Durham with Star Dealer awards, an acknowledgment earned by achieving excellent performance in new and pre-owned sales, service and parts, as well as outstanding consumer satisfaction over the course of the previous calendar year.
“From the very first day Mercedes-Benz established itself in Canada in 1955, the company has had a special presence in Toronto and has grown steadily throughout the Greater Toronto Area in the decades since,” said Eva Wiese, president and CEO, Mercedes-Benz Canada. “The hard work, knowledge and passion shown by Toronto Retail Group employees have built the three-pointed star into a truly desirable luxury brand in Canada. The completion of this sale marks the next chapter in this great story.
