An Enthusiast Since Birth
Ted Wilkinson is the mastermind behind the popular Wilkinson’s Automobilia in the Main Street area of Vancouver. He has been an automotive/motorcycle/racing enthusiast since birth, and this store is an extension of his passion. In operation since 1988, Wilkinson’s is nestled in a quiet, tree-lined street and is packed with great items for every automotive interest. The shelves and bookcases, which reach from the floor to the top of the 12-foot ceiling, are overflowing with informative and intriguing resources on automobilia. But don’t worry about walking into a jungle, because the space is laid out in perfectly kept isles and each shelf is impeccably organized and easy to navigate.
The Old Fashioned Way
Although computers are a necessary part of any business, the staff at Wilkinson’s have all of the information that they need in their heads. They are walking encyclopedias for information that customers are seeking, and can help shoppers find just the book that they’re looking for. With new and used cars items arriving daily, that’s quite a feat! Not only do they sell remarkable items, they also buy things that are interesting. They’re always on the lookout for cool car stuff, literature, vintage diecasts and books - anything having to do with automobilia. You can even browse their merchandise on their website, which has been up and running since 2000.
