The world-class OpenRoad Mazda building had its exclusive grand opening celebration on Friday, March 14, 2014. Mr. Akira Marumoto, Executive Vice President of Mazda Motors Corporation (from Hiroshima, Japan) and Mr. Kory Koreeda, President of Mazda Canada, joined Christian Chia, President & CEO of OpenRoad Auto Group, and Kirt Gill, General Manager of OpenRoad Mazda, with a "Kagami-Biraki" ceremony. Sake was served to all to celebrate the opening of harmony and good fortune for the new store.

Tantalizing delights were served by Tojo himself, of Vancouver's famous Tojo's Restaurant, crafting sushi for dozens waiting after the original large batch was gobbled before speeches began. Hapa Izakaya provided the second of a powerful one-two Vancouver punch, offering high-demand savoury canapes served by wonderful servers.

An open bar consisted of a massive supply of Sapporo beer, thanks to Sapporo Breweries.

Guests gathered in the showroom to watch Global TV's Arran Henn direct the evening with a projected timelapse of the construction of OpenRoad Mazda looping with "Zoom Zoom" style videos overhead.

Uzume Taiko performed taiko drumming of traditional Japanese percussion instruments and later fused effortlessly with the hot beats being dropped by DJ Mary Mac.

It was a grand event with guests leaving invariably happy and proud of their new OpenRoad Mazda store.
