It’s all about being part of a neighbourhood.
And ensuring your car runs properly and is 100 percent safe, of course.
Pertab Shivratan, owner of Tier 1 Auto and Exhaust Centre believes in being part of a neighbourhood. He moved to Canada from the United Kingdom over a decade ago and began a few Dollar Stores. He soon returned to London, he said, to arrange for his family, and then the group settled in Canada. His first job upon his return was with Sears Canada, and then he worked with Active Green & Ross until 2017 before moving on to operating a Midas franchise.
All of those business experiences made him want to operate his own. Instead of running a franchise, he said, he wanted to run that neighbourhood business that everyone knew and loved.
Purchasing the previous auto and tire business at his present location presented him with that opportunity.
This business had many loyal customers, and I believe in the neighbourhood business,” Sivratan said. “I like supporting neighbourhood businesses and like to show my customers that I will work hard to make them happy and give them great service as well. I have a passion for the automotive business and a passion for this neighbourhood.”
