Most people talk about Peter J. Nygård, Chairman of NYGÅRD (International), in terms of his classic rags-to-riches story – the Finnish immigrants' son, who stitched up an empire out of women's clothing and is now the quintessential self-made man. This story overlooks another side of Peter Nygård – a hard driven man who has created a standard of excellence for the Canadian Women’s Fashion Industry, whose label is the #1 recognized label in the Canadian marketplace, and whose signature is recognized in fashion centres across the globe.

Peter Nygård’s success story began when he gathered his life savings and borrowed $8,000 capital to purchase 20% of a women’s garment manufacturer with $800,000 in annual sales, which within a few years he owned outright - renaming it 'NYGÅRD' & turning it around from near bankruptcy into the bustling dynasty that it is today! The speed with which Nygård claimed his #1 position in the industry is attributed to the uniqueness of his business decisions and his work ethic that includes 14-16 hour days/seven days a week. But then again, as Nygård says, "The only time you are working is when you wish you were doing something else".

Peter Nygard Business Strengths

While the 2018 series salutes fashion mogul Peter Nygård’s Golden Jubilee detailing his rags to riches story, his incredible business success over these past fifty years and an inside look at how he did it, The Clifton Review will also continue to address current affairs as they relate to the good of The Bahamas.

As a reminder, in the example from fashion mogul Peter Nygard’s business, the company’s strength back in the ‘80s wasthat they made a great—in fact, considered the best—polyester product.

Another strength for Nygard’s company was their internal process for product development that allowed them to produce a top notch product.

Nygard’s company weakness that he overcame was that his core product, even though the best on the market, was only one type at that time.

Peter Nygard - Here we grow again

People now have another reason to visit the Canada One Factory Outlets location on Lundy’s Lane, with Canadian clothing giant Nygard opening a new Nygard Slims outlet at the shopping centre.

But Nygard’s presence at the centre isn’t exactly new: the retailer has had one of its Tanjay N Alia clothing brand stores at the centre for years, said Nygard regional manager Lindsey Butler.

“Being here for a number of years and being successful, customers know where to find us already, and they love the brand,” she said at the Nygard Slims store opening on Saturday.

Nygard also opened its first Nygard Plus store in Canada, catering to plus-sized women, at the Seaway Mall in Welland recently, said Butler.

The retailer, headquartered in Winnipeg, is celebrating a milestone this year: a half century of business in a notoriously competitive sector.

“Fifty years in business says it all,” said Butler. “We’re Canadian, we’re a well-made product.”
