Owner and Founder, Dean Church, started his days here at LBAC back in 1989 when the doors first opened with his dad, Sandy Church. Since that first day, the Church’s have created an environment that truly demonstrates that LBAC is the “Friendliest Car Store on the Planet”. They have understood that buying or servicing a vehicle can be daunting for consumers and have made every effort to change what that experience should be like. Not only does Dean have a keen eye for ensuring that LBAC delivers high-quality service, but he is also active within the community with organizations such as Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation and many local sports teams. In his home away from home, Dean enjoys camping, hiking, travel, building dreams and most of all his family.

With Bob Hill as his doppelganger, Eric joined LBAC nearly 17 years ago with a huge interest in the automotive service industry. You should see what our customers are saying about him…
My car was in recently for an issue. It was the same issue it experienced less than a year ago. Your service department could have charged me for the same repair, but instead admitted the new harness hadn’t quite been installed correct, it was now installed correctly, and there would be no charge.
Integrity is the only way to describe the service provided at Liberty Bay. It will keep me and my friends loyal to your store. And Eric was a pleasure to work with.
