Hello. I am the The Volvo Lady’s web designer. I’ve also known Marie for more years than either one of care to think about. 😉 I got to know Marie way back in the early 1980s, when I got my very first Volvo from Abbotsford Imports. Now both of us are a wee bit older, and oh so much wiser. 🙂
For those of you who have driven by the shop in the past few weeks, you’ll likely have noticed some changes. Although the sign is still there, gone are the many fine, reclaimed Volvos that The Volvo Lady had for sale. That’s right. The Volvo Lady has left the building….
All that is left is the service department. However, even Neil is moving his workshop at the end of this month. After nearly 40 years in the same place, Abbotsford will no longer have any Volvos, or Volvo service, at 33286 South Fraser Way.
Since The Volvo Lady no longer has any inventory, and no longer officially operates as a dealer, it makes sense that her website has undergone major changes as well. Gone are all photos of cars in her inventory, and services her business offers. However, retirement does not mean Marie loves cars any less.
The Volvo Lady is still interested in finding lovely Volvos in amazing condition, which people are wanting/needing to sell. If that sounds like your situation, please use the Contact page to send her an email.
If you’re looking for a Volvo, she is still the go-to person in the Lower Mainland for that as well. Despite her retirement, The Volvo Lady is maintaining her connections with her colleagues who can assist in finding a fine reclaimed Volvo.
As for what the future of this website is, that is up to Marie. I have provided her with some suggestions, let’s see what she decides to go with.
In the immediate future however, The Volvo Lady has some last-minute business to wrap up, before leaving on a much-deserved vaca.
Until next time, in the words of Volvo’s former tag line: Drive Safely. Although we drive cars that are incredibly safe, we all hope they don’t end up looking like the one from this classic print ad from 1989, featuring a 700 series…
