Since 1956, beginning in a small dealership lot in Toronto, Plaza Auto Group has grown as a 4-generation family business.
Over the years we have changed brands but never our commitment to our customers, community and staff. We are proudly serving the Greater Toronto Area, from downtown Toronto and into North York, Thornhill, Richmond Hill, cottage country in Orillia and Walkerton in Bruce County.
The first dealership, Plaza Autos, was opened by Morris Stein in 1956 on Bathurst Street. By 1959 the space was proving too small for the dealership and Morris took over an existing dealership at 989 Eglinton Ave West and opened Plaza’s second location.
In 1966 a new dealership was opened as the Stein’s began selling Pontiac, Buick and GMC vehicles. Morris’s son, Herbert, began running the dealership in 1956, and his son, Robert, came on as general manager in the 1980’s.
As an active participant in the growth of the community, Morris built the business focused on high standards of customer service that created a family-type relationship with many long-term customers that purchased and services their vehicles for many continuous years.
From community involvement and support to the regular car care clinics he held to help his customers understand their vehicles, Morris built a reputation for reliability and fairness.
This proud tradition continues in the now 5 Plaza Auto Group dealerships and with Robert Stein’s own sons working with him.
