Tim Petruk from Kamloops this Week via BCLocalNews.com: It's the end of one era for a long-time Kamloops auto dealership. Terry Lowe, president and dealer principal of Saturn of Kamloops announced Thursday the Valleyview dealership that has been selling Saturns for almost two decades would be changing brands after Roger Penske, the new owner of the Saturn brand, decided not to carry the cars north of the 49. "It's a bit of a sad day because I've put 18 years of blood, sweat and tears into Saturn," he said. Existing Saturn customers will be able to continue to have their maintenance and repair needs looked after at the dealership. Saturn of Kamloops will no longer be a Saturn retailer as of December 31, 2009.
