CARSTAR Thanks Communities Across North America for Supporting its Network of Local Owners

CARSTAR, North America’s largest premier network of independently owned and operated collision repair facilities, surprised lucky residents from communities across North America with $100 cash gift cards.

Participating locations spanned from CARSTAR La Tuque in Quebec to CARSTAR Ideal Northglenn in Colorado, and 35 other facilities in between.

“It has never been more important to support local, so we gave away chocolate bars as a thank you to the community – with one chocolate bar randomly holding a $100 cash gift card inside,” says Eddy Page, owner, CARSTAR Babbsco. “CARSTAR Babbsco has been here for almost 25 years, so we have built wonderful relationships across Niagara Falls, New York. We were thrilled to see our loyal customer for several years, Chaz, open up his chocolate bar and find this fun surprise.”

Owners gave away chocolate bars to their customers, vendors, employees, and community supporters, with one special chocolate bar in each community holding a $100 cash gift card inside.

“We have been family-owned and operated for 28 years and we are thankful to our customers as well as our employees, for sticking with us, especially during this challenging year,” says Patricia Fahey, co-owner, CARSTAR Calgary McKnight and CARSTAR Calgary Bowness. “Our employees have stepped up to the plate to take on extra work due to layoffs. The team works hard and is dedicated to the values and premier standards that CARSTAR represents.”

CARSTAR has built a reputation for collision repair excellence because it is locally owned and operated by people who care about the communities they serve. These longstanding body shop owners are grateful for their communities and happy to pay it forward.

“We have a close relationship with our community, and we were happy to see everyone appreciate our gesture of gratitude,” says Dave Jacobus, co-owner, CARSTAR Jacobus. “Our winner, Leon Maygra, already had a great day since he made a 20lbs catch while fishing. The excitement continued and he called to let us know he also won the $100 surprise in his chocolate bar.”
