They’ve got cars, SUVs, trucks…and for the first time, recreational vehicles. BCs biggest annual used and new car sale; ‘Mega Sale’, is back at the Exhibition Grounds. 7 dealerships are taking part this year.
People have come from as far as Prince Rupert and Dawson creek to check out the deals.
It’s only half way through the nine-day event, but the Dealer Principal of Northland Nissan & Northland Hyundai, Peter Sia, says his group has already sold more vehicles than last year. “Kyle at the Dodge store and I have been talking, and we haven’t seen it this busy since about 2013, 2014…I have been involved in the sale the last 9 years, and this is probably the first time we have seen so many buyers.”
Sia says most of his customers are first-time buyers.
Dealerships are hoping to keep the momentum going into the weekend. “I am guessing we will probably see 500 to 600 people here each day,” says Sia. “I believe this is the start to a great finish of the year.”
