GANDER, NEWFOUNDLAND--(Marketwire - May 9, 2011) - Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the largest car rental brand in North America, is opening a new rental office in Gander, Newfoundland.

"We are very excited about this new location as it will give us the opportunity to serve our customers more efficiently," said Connie Cribb, who is managing the new location. "We look forward to continuing to provide our local customers with the highest levels of customer service and the best value."

An active participant in communities in which it is located, Enterprise buys its cars from local dealerships and recruits employees from colleges and universities within the region.
