    About Merit Ford and the Carlyle community:

    A little about our dealership and community. Both are small but what we lack in size we make up for in activity. Merit Ford is a very busy dealership. We are right in the heart of the reemerging oil industry and have always had great backing by our Farming community. Located on 2 busy highways Carlyle is the hub for many businesses in both sectors and we like to boast we have nearly 100 businesses in our town. That may not sound like a lot but our town population hovers around 1200 so with that in mind it is a very entrepreneurial community. We have most of the conveniences of a bigger center from a handful of restaurants, retail clothing outlets, pharmacies, electronics, hardware stores, grocery, etc. Our town is also minutes away from two lakes that are both great for fishing, hiking, boating, golfing or just soaking in the day with your feet up. Carlyle is truly unique to Saskatchewan. Yes, we have the “Flat” but also have some beautiful landscapes that set us apart from other areas in our province. Our community is hard working and expects their vehicles to be as hard-working as they are. That expectation is carried forward to our shop and our team carries that weight with great pride and consistency.
