CARSTAR Calgary Royal Oak Opens in Royal Oak

CARSTAR, North America’s largest premier network of independently owned and operated collision repair facilities is proud to announce the opening of CARSTAR Calgary Royal Oak.

The CMD Group, one of CARSTAR’s largest Calgary area multi-store owner groups, is excited to celebrate the launch of their newest location, CARSTAR Calgary Royal Oak. Chris Stathonikos, Matthew Stathonikos and Dave Stretz are the longstanding team that make up the CMD Group, who opened their first location in 1997.

“Having worked together in the industry for so long, we understand what we need to do in order to create a premier experience for our customers, while also continuously advancing alongside our ever-changing business,” says Matthew Stathonikos, co-owner, CARSTAR CMD Group. “We know the greater Calgary area appreciates having a premier collision repair partner, so this added location extends our reach to better support the Royal Oak community.”

CARSTAR Calgary Royal Oak is a 12,000 square foot facility that is brand new and committed to working towards earning key industry and OEM certifications. Expertly repairing all makes and models while keeping customers informed during the repair is the standard at all other CMD Group owned locations, which the team is bringing to their newest facility.

“This ownership group is incredibly involved in the operations at each location to ensure premier customer service and outstanding collision repairs,” says Mike Piper, Western Canada Zone Director, CARSTAR. “We are so thrilled to see the team expand, as their services are unmatched and we know the Royal Oak area will appreciate their expertise.”

Always giving back to Calgary and its surrounding communities, the CMD Group eagerly fundraises for Cystic Fibrosis Canada, CARSTAR’s charity of choice, throughout the year in various capacities. Owner Dave Stretz even donated thousands at the 2018 CARSTAR Conference to secure the priceless painting from 6-year-old Faith Newell, who lives with cystic fibrosis, to proudly display at one of their locations.
