Bannister GM Dawson Creek was my best experience in purchasing a vehicle. Above and beyond professional and personable. Erik and Will were phenomenal to deal with.
Just bought a 2024 Denali, The Boys at browns were great to deal with, and great service to go with my purchase, very pleased with Browns, been dealing at Brown`s for many years and have bought many trucks and cars from them. Thanks,
Great friendly service
Super amazing people to deal with, I was looking at two different vehicles there they let me do multiple test drives and then when I decided they got everything done as quickly as possible! I appreciate every second they spent helping me!
Nick is the best! He deserves a raise! 🙂
Easy and efficient… just the way I like to deal with big purchases. Being able to text was very helpful, as I don’t have time to answer my phone during the day.
Excellent service.
I would like to express my gratitude to GM Bannister for providing exceptional service. Lee and Adam went above and beyond my expectations, and their customer service was outstanding. I will definitely return and recommend them to others. Thank you once again.🤩🤩

Moved to Canada 🇨🇦 from the uk Jack is the man cannot recommend this dealer enough thanks for the help Jack
Have been waiting since March 25th for Fort St John to get the parts to fix our truck. Talked to FSJ Tuesday morning to see if they were ever going to get the parts because the part had now totally s**t the bed, and was told they had no way of knowing when they could get them because they were on backorder. Hung up called Brown's and was told they had the parts in stock, made us an appointment for Friday, but if we could get it there before then they could probably get it done earlier. Dropped it off 4:30 Tuesday afternoon and Brown's called at 10:00 Wednesday morning it was done and ready for an pickup, and they had done the open recalls as well.
My experience with Browns has been excellent! The parts and service department is second to none. Very friendly and when We needed them the most, they were there for us. I’ve dealt with the sales department as well on a few occasions. Great guys to deal with. They make you feel at home. When you buy from Todd Fanning you actually get to experience your ride for as long as you need before you commit. No around the block BS! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Rolled in late friday with vehicle troubles. Chad had me back on the road in a new duramax that evening. Excellent customer service. Thanks Browns
Love to see the Browns’ logo on the jackets of the Laura Walker curling team at the Grand Slam ofCurling in North Battleford this weekend. Proud to see a local business supporting a Canadian Team!
great group of guys. honest

THE BANNISTER STORY

Lyn Bannister attended the University of Denver on a hockey scholarship where he received his Bachelor of Physical Education, followed by a Master of Education from the University of Minnesota and went on to pursue a ten year career in education and coaching hockey.

With Lyn’s entrepreneurial spirit and a supportive wife, Joanne, Lyn left his education career in 1975. In 1979 they moved to Barrhead, Alberta where they primarily raised their three children, Mark, Chad and Mary-Jo. It was in Barrhead that Lyn and Joanne had the opportunity to purchase the GM store, Lyn Bannister Pontiac Buick, with the financial backing of Motors Holding, a division of General Motors.

In 1990 Lyn and Joanne sold their store in Barrhead and moved to the Okanagan and purchased Bannister GM Vernon.

Starting with a single Pontiac Buick dealership in Barrhead, Alberta, Lyn and Joanne Bannister, along with their children Mark, Chad and Mary-Jo, built a company that now employs over 650 people in two provinces that has had a consistent message: we are a family business with family values.

In 1996 Lyn was honoured with the McLean’s Magazine Dealer of Excellence Award for the province of BC, recognizing the best new car dealers across Canada. Lyn has served on numerous boards in the automotive industry, locally, provincially and nationally.

All three children have taken post-secondary education in business and the automotive industry. Mark and Mary-Jo attended the Canadian Automotive Institute in Barrie, ON and transferred to Northwood University in West Palm Beach, FL for their final year where they obtained their Bachelor of Business Administration, Automotive Marketing. Chad attended Camrose Lutheran College, now Augustana University, where he obtained his Bachelor of Economics, followed by a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Upon graduation he enrolled in the three year CA program with KPMG. Both Chad and Mary-Jo have taken the dealer academy training program through NADA. (The US based National Automotive Dealer Association.)

What started out as Lyn and Joanne working in the business for 20 years has truly become a family business.
