Several months ago, several Honda customers residing in the northern reaches of Metro Manila were dismayed to learn the closure of the automaker’s Kalookan dealership. Formerly operated by the Yuchengco Group, the showroom’s shutdown (along with three others) was reportedly a necessary move to streamline the conglomerate’s automotive arm. However, the facility is once again opening its doors under new management.
Honda Cars Philippines calls the Kalookan dealership a “new” one, but as far as we’re concerned it’s a reopening. The showroom is still situated along EDSA at East Grace Park, Caloocan City, with a capacity for 10 vehicles on the showroom floor, and equipped with 25 service bays for clients needing maintenance and repair works. What is new, however, is that Honda Kalookan will be operated by Barrhorn Motors Corporation under the ANC Group of Companies.
The reopening of Honda Kalookan should be welcome news for owners and potential buyers of Honda cars hailing from the Camanava area, as well as Quezon City and nearby Bulacan.
