We are VW people. Everyone who works here lives and breathes the Volkswagen brand. We have been selling quality VW vehicles in Vancouver since 1960. It’s hard to believe that in just a few short years this dealership will be 60 years old. We still remain a family owned dealership, and we still maintain a family environment. Herman Clark and Ken Annandale left behind a successful finance business to supply Vancouver with the Volkswagen vehicles that they wanted and needed. They started out of an old gas station and over 55 years later, we are still in the same neighborhood. We are still focused and dedicated to the Volkswagen brand. As a testament to that, in 2011 we were awarded the Wolfsburg Award. An award from Volkswagen that is so prestigious, only a select few VW dealers ever get to see one. Come to Clarkdale Volkswagen if you want a friendly VW shopping experience with a knowledgeable staff that will always have your best interests in mind.
We have always been a part of the Vancouver community. We opened our doors in September of 1960 in an old B.A. Gas Station. We watched from across the street as a Safeway station renovated to become our new home. Soon we had a Porsche franchise to go along with our Volkswagen business. In 1970, we expanded and pushed our pre-owned car business next door to make room for an Audi franchise. Eventually in 1977, we dropped Porsche and refocused our business. Shortly afterward, the Audi franchise followed, but we did not see this as a loss. We saw this as a way to refocus our business on Volkswagen and on our customers. In 1986, we had a fire, and in 1989, we renovated. In 2003, we renovated again. Each time we gave ourselves the opportunity to re-energize our business. Through all these years, we have made every decision and every change with our customers in mind. Now you can partake in the fruit of our labors. – less
