Almar Automotive

Hello Everyone, we have some non-Covid-19 related news.

We have located and procured a doppelganger for Al. Yes you heard that right, we found another Al…and his name is Craig Maidens! SO IT IS WITH GREAT DELIGHT, AND A HEAVY HEAR THAT WE ARE ANNOUNCING OUR RETIREMENT!


Many of you suspected this day was coming, but please rest assured that Craig honours the same customer values and business principles that we have embraced for over 22 years. We are confidently passing the ‘wrench’ to Craig, who will continue to offer the same great ‘Professional Quality, Hometown Service’ values and attitude that you have come to know and trust.


Craig is a third generation community minded ‘Barrie-ite’, actively volunteering in our community for decades. He has been a licensed Automotive Service Technician for over 25 years and brings 18 years of experience managing and operating a service and repair facility. We could not have been luckier in finding such an honest, hardworking, like minded family! So please join us in welcoming Craig, Heather and their family.

Al and I will be around to assist Craig and Heather for as long as they need us. But eventually, we will be fading into the background as you all come to know Craig and Heather, and give them the same opportunity you have given us to earn your trust.

It has been an honour to serve all of you, to become your friend, to watch your families grow. You have invited us into your homes and hearts and for that we are truly grateful! We will miss each and every one of you. So with fond memories and a heavy heart, we bid you all Adieu.

Al & Marg
