PartSource, an automotive parts retailer and wholesaler that operates 81 stores across Canada, opened its newest store at 19055 Airport Way in Pitt Meadows last month.

This is the first auto parts store that PartSource has opened in B.C., and it will employ 40-60 people once it is fully operational. The Pitt Meadows location is a 40,000 square-foot hub store that will be open seven days a week, carrying more than 30,000 automotive parts and accessories for wholesale customers.

Staff gathered with representatives from the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Chamber of Commerce and commercial customers for a ribbon cutting ceremony, with Sean Stokes, vice-president of the company, and Gary Bizzo, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce, doing the honours.

PartSource is a Canadian automotive parts retail chain owned by Canadian Tire Corporation, that was launched in 1996.
