Lordco Auto Parts Ltd. opened the doors to its newest store in the Tsain-Ko Village Shopping Mall, in Sechelt, B.C.
“Our customers have been extremely receptive and supportive throughout the opening,” says James Ward, General Manager at Lordco, “We have received very positive feedback about the store.”
This comes as no surprise since the company has been servicing sectors of the Sunshine Coast market since 1994.
Lordco’s new Sechelt store has a wide array of products in stock and has access to over 360,000 part numbers in the company’s system.
Offering overnight delivery for all its products from the central distribution centre, Lordco can supply customers with whatever it is they need quickly.
The store is open seven days a week from 8 AM to 6 PM on Monday through Saturday, and 9 AM to 5 PM on Sunday.
“Customers on the Coast can find everything from automotive parts to camping equipment and more at our store,” Ward explains. But the benefits of welcoming a Lordco store to the local community extend beyond its shopping needs.
As a British Columbia-based, family-owned-and-operated business, Lordco hires locally whenever possible.
“Nine people from Sechelt have been hired so far for various positions in the store—from inside sales representatives to delivery drivers and warehouse personnel. We are looking forward to expanding the team and hiring more people as the business grows,” adds Ward.
The Sechelt store is part of the third phase of the Tsain-Ko Village Shopping Centre expansion and is a continuation of a long history in local communities.
Founders Roy Lord and Ed Coates, the “Lord” and “co” in Lordco Auto Parts, opened the first Lordco Auto Parts store in 1974, in Maple Ridge, British Columbia.
The newest store location in Sechelt solidifies this commitment to their customers who live and work on the Sunshine Coast.
The Sechelt store is located at Tsain-Ko Village Shopping Mall at 702 – 5500 Sunshine Coast Hwy, (604) 885-8269.
