There’s new life for the former Down Town Auto location on Chemainus Road.
DP Singh has reopened the service station under the Canco banner. Canco is a B.C. company, he explained, established in Kelowna.
As the local franchisee, “I’m only taking care of this site and one in Duncan at Berkey’s Corner by Mongrillian,” Singh added.
It’s a self-serve station, but Singh said he’s always willing to help out seniors who need it to pump gas or figure out the pay-at-the-pump system.
There’s also a small convenience store and Singh said plans are also in the works to eventually utilize the car repair side of the operation.
There was a soft opening of the station July 16 and a grand opening to come.
With high gas prices becoming the norm, Singh also pledges to “try to keep it cheaper.”
