Kenmac Auto Parts was a business envisioned by Ken McHeffey, he came to the Sunshine Coast on a tip that this area needed an auto parts business to service the growing community. The land was purchased on highway 101 and the building began. The doors opened for business in July of 1959. Kenmac Auto Parts which carried the name of the owner, started with one employee, Larry Boyd and Ken to supply the growing town of Gibsons and surrounding areas. They ran a delivery out to Sechelt and into logging camps.
Larry and Yvonne Boyd purchased the business in July of 1968 and continued to service the growing town of Gibsons. Working hard to meet all the needs of the community, the store was doubled in size in 1975 at which time Larry’s son Shawn started working part time. He was unsure if this was what he wanted to do with his life; however, became the manager of the store in 1980, purchasing it a few years later.
