OUR STORY

THIS PAST YEAR MARKED 25 YEARS OF BUSINESS FOR THIS FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED DEALERSHIP AND WITH THAT, WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE OUR STORY WITH YOU!

Our dealership has sustained the Heartbeat of Chevrolet in Orillia and surrounding areas since first opening the doors on Memorial Avenue in 1992. We still have several of our original staff members who are always on site with smiling faces ready to help you with whatever automotive concern you may have. We also make a big effort to support numerous community organizations, most notably the Orillia Terriers; Soldiers Memorial Hospital, Rotary, Orillia 2018 Ontario Winter Games, and the SPCA just to name a few!

Early in 2006, Jim Wilson acquired the Orillia Pontiac Dealership and in April 2007 and both Dealerships merged into the new 26,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility at 20 Mulcahy Court in West Ridge Place, Orillia!

Since selling his first Buick at 15 years old, Jim has since owned and operated several dealerships in North Bay, Huntsville, and Orillia, but his dream was always to have a General Motors dealership with his namesake. Jim is very actively involved in the store, and fondly wears his nickname ‘the Silverado Sheriff’.
