Hgregoire Establishes In Texas With The Acquisition Of A First Dealership In Houston

5 December 2023

HGregoire announces its expansion into Texas with the acquisition of an automobile dealership in West Houston, considered an iconic site due to the gable roof of its showroom. The opening of this establishment is scheduled for mid-December. This tenth HGregoire dealership in the United States includes a redesigned 82,500 square foot showroom, service center, customer lounge and 7.4 acres of land. In 1966, when this car dealership was built, it was a pioneer, occupying “the most modern building in the world”. HGregoire, as the new owner and manager, intends to make it the largest automobile dealership in Texas in terms of cars in inventory.

“We have been impatiently waiting for such an opportunity to present itself,” says HGregoire President and CEO John Hairabedian. We have had our eye on Texas for several years and we are delighted to make a breakthrough in this state with the acquisition of a historic site so well anchored in the city's heritage. Our entire team is excited to serve customers in the Houston metro area and beyond by delivering on our promise to redefine the used car market. »

HGreg Houston represents an initial investment of US$55 million, including US$22 million for the acquisition of the property and the renovation of the establishment, becoming a point of sale at the cutting edge of modernity. Known for its wide selection of vehicles, simplified customer experience and low prices, HGregoire is now recruiting approximately 100 employees in Houston.

Present in California since 2020, in Florida since 2009 and in Quebec since 1993, the company now has a presence in three of the largest markets in the United States for the sale of new and used cars.

“Customers in Canada and the United States are looking for a large selection of cars, low prices and a simplified purchasing experience,” adds Mr. Hairabedian. This is exactly what HGregoire offers and it is one of the keys to our success, wherever we operate. »

HGregoire aims to provide Houston with a unique shopping experience, unparalleled in-person and online services and access to a vast selection of up to 5,000 carefully inspected used vehicles, the largest inventory in quality used cars on the market.

The company, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, continues to invest to increase its presence in North America by entering new markets.
