We pride ourselves on being a full-service Ford dealership and a solid presence in our hometown of Midland and the surrounding region.
These same values have been passed on to the entire Bourgeois Auto Group including Bourgeois NissanBourgeois Ford North in Parry Sound, and our newest addition, Bourgeois Midland Hyundai.  All 4 car dealerships specialize in new Ford, Nissan, and Hyundai cars, trucks, and SUVs as well as a huge selection of used cars for sale.

We were sad to hear the news that one of our members, My GBay, will be closing their doors but we wish Barb an amazing adventure ahead and will still look forward to seeing her smiling face around town!

I have had the absolute pleasure of serving our community at My Gbay store for the last five years. Previously the Georgian Bay Windsurfing Shop began over thirty years ago of which I was a loyal customer. Change has come to my store and with that, I announce that we will be closing our doors on Friday, April 30th. For the next six weeks, I will be selling all of my inventory at 50-70% off. So come on in, say goodbye and get yourself a great deal!  We will be open from Monday-Friday, 11 am-4 pm. The sale is for in-store purchases only, with no returns or exchanges available. Please note that all outstanding gift cards will be honoured until April 30.
Thank you for your support, your loyalty, and your friendship!
I look forward to continuing to serve our community in other ways.
