OK Tire Stores Inc. has announced that OK Pneus La Malbaie in Clermont, QC, has been awarded “National Store of the Year” for 2021.
OK Tire also announced the winners of seven regional top shop awards.
The honour of National Store of the Year is awarded to an OK Tire location that upholds OK Tire’s motto, “Honestly Driven” and consistently provides outstanding quality auto service to their community.
Presented with the award, store owners Frédéric Ouellet, Marc-Antoine Leblond, Martin Dassylva and Jean-François Marier were celebrated by colleagues and industry partners at the company’s 2022 Annual General Meeting, held virtually.
Together they have more than 50 years of combined experience in the tire industry.
In 2019 they decided to build a new location to further grow by adding mechanical, fleet services, storage and distribution in the Clermont region.
Their new location of 13,000 square feet was a substantial investment and included local contractors to ensure the local community was involved in the build.
“We are honoured to receive this award and proud to provide our customers with exceptional customer service at each visit,” says OK Pneus La Malbaie owner Frédéric Ouellet.
“We wanted to take this opportunity to thank our team, customers and corporate office employees who continue to support us daily. We are overwhelmed with this honour and will continue to put our customers’ needs first today and in the future.”
At OK Pneus La Malbaie, Frédéric, Marc-Antoine, Jean-François and Martins’ mission is clear: to listen to their customers’ needs first and always offer quality service. Their dedication to providing clients with superior service to meet their needs is paramount. From car to light truck and heavy machinery tires, the latest car accessories and vehicle maintenance, the OK Pneus La Malbaie team is the region’s expert!
“As a company, it has always been our priority to recognize outstanding teams that go above and beyond every day to service customers. This year’s “National Store of the Year” award winner did just that,” says OK Tire President and CEO, Jim Bethune.
“As businesses faced hurdles in 2021, we are tremendously proud of OK Pneus La Malbaie for showing true innovation and leadership in driving best-in-class customer service in Clermont.”
