Mr. Doug Blackie of Blackie and Guit Volkswagen in New Westminster opened "Haney Mazda" in 1969 at the corner of 2nd Ave. (now 207th St) and Lougheed Hwy. with a one car showroom, two bay service department one technician on about ¼ acre of land.
Marv Jones entered into a management contract with an option to purchase from Mr. Blackie on Sept 1, 1973. With the help of his dad Ted, the option to purchase was exercised in October 1973. Marv took the bit between his teeth so to speak; he was the lot guy, car washer, answered the phone, was the only salesperson, acted as his own sales manager, and dealer principal.
In November of 1973 Marv wrote a letter to Honda of America asking that if they had any plans of expanding into Canada as he would be most interested in acquiring the Honda franchise for Maple Ridge Pitt Meadows, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam. Coquitlam Center was not even in the planning stages! Haney, as Maple Ridge was known, was considered way out in the sticks.
On September 1, 1974 Marv had the grand opening of "Marv Jones Honda". He sold one car the whole weekend. Marv was sure he had made a catastrophic mistake in taking on the Honda franchise and that he would surely go broke. Potential customers would laugh at the side ways mounted motor and front wheel drive.
Marv remembered standing at the front door of his little showroom all by himself looking out at the 15 civics he had bought from Honda. He had their hazard lights on, all the hatch backs open and balloons flying, but no customers!
In 1975 the first oil crisis arrived in North America and his little fuel efficient cars started selling like crazy. The rest as they say is history as Maple Ridge and the surrounding municipalities grew. The intersection of 207th and Lougheed got a traffic light and the speed limit was reduced so passing motorists could actually look at our lot as they drove by.
From our humble beginnings as the first Honda Dealer west of Ontario, the business has grown to become one of the largest volume Honda dealerships in BC. Folks come from all over the province to take advantage of our "No Bull" style of doing business. The picture of the universal no sign surrounding a Bull has adorned our buildings through 6 building improvements and expansions.
From 3 team members in 1973 Marv Jones Honda now boosts a team of over 100. Marv's son, Ryan, is now General Manager in the Maple Ridge store so Dad can take more time with family, friends, golf and gardening.
