History of Main Street Automotive

Bill Gleeson

Vancouver Born and Raised

Bill Gleeson, owner of Main Street Automotive, was born and raised in Vancouver. His father worked as a pharmacist on Main Street during the 1950s, operating his own drugstore on 49th Avenue. Bill got his start in the automotive industry while in high school, pumping gas at a station on the corner of 49th Avenue and Fraser St. It was about the same time that he started his apprenticeship program. By the age of 22, Bill was a licensed mechanic technician and 10 years later he opened his own business, a petro-can station at the corner of Broadway and MacDonald. It was during the year 2000 that Bill continued the family tradition by purchasing a property on Main Street and opening Main Street Automotive.
