About Our Dealership at Terra Nova Buick GMC


Terra Nova Buick GMC has been an integral part of the St. John’s community since 1930. In those 90-plus years, we have never lost sight of our daily mission to deliver high-quality vehicles and services to our friends and neighbours. Our state-of-the-art facility measures 35,000 square feet and can hold several hundred new Buick and GMC vehicles at any given time, allowing customers to always have plenty of new and pre-owned options to consider. Let’s take a look at a few things that set Terra Nova Buick GMC apart from the other competing dealerships.

Terra Nova Buick GMC is a Female-Led Dealership

Things are rapidly changing in the automotive industry as many automakers, including those falling under the General Motors umbrella are already developing the next generation of automotive technology. Terra Nova Buick GMC couldn’t be prouder to help our customers embrace this leap forward. We are changing the game on the local level by changing leadership at the top.
Alexia Russell has taken over as the dealer-principle for Terra Nova Buick GMC from Doug Russell, who led the dealership through many cutting-edge changes we see today. Alexia is one of only a handful of women to be at the head of the table of a dealership in Canada.

Community Involvement

Terra Nova Buick GMC has been fortunate enough to have been supported by our community for more than 90 years. It is very important to us that we do everything in our ability to return that support to people who need it. One of our longest-running charitable efforts is our collaboration with Buick Canada, where we donate $10 for every test drive to donate as much as $10,000 to a local school. We have also previously partnered with Mount Pearl High School to raise money for extracurricular programs and other needs.

COVID-19 Protocols

The Newfoundland and Labrador government is slowly easing all of us out of COVID-19 restrictions meant to mitigate our risk of catching and transmitting the virus. While everyone is ironing out the details of what this phase of the pandemic means, we’ll slowly be relaxing our own protocols over time. Until then, we ask that Terra Nova Buick GMC visitors:

  • Check Yourself: Use available self-screening tools and reschedule appointments if you aren’t feeling well.
  • Arrive on time: Please arrive as close to your appointment as possible while we work on managing crowds and interactions between staff and customers.
  • Masks: Terra Nova Buick GMC employees will wear masks as they feel comfortable, or by customer request.
