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 gives warm welcome to Retail Council Of Canada

Our free summer BBQ lunches in PARK 50 continue to be a hit with all of our NYGARD employees and last week, Wednesday, August 14, was no exception!

We also gave a warm welcome to our guests, Diane J. Brisebois, Karl Littler & John Graham from the Retail Council Of Canada (RCC), who joined us for a healthy lunch under the glorious Winnipeg sun and for a tour of Gallery 50 & our Inkster facilities.

I think we all did a full-on high five (in our heads, of course) when we heard Ms. Brisebois exclaim, "...I want to come back again!"

NYGARD welcomes Retail Council of Canada visit

On August 14, 2019, we were honoured to host Diane J. Brisebois, Karl Littler & John Graham from the Retail Council of Canada.

The Retail Council of Canada (RCC) represents over 45,000 retail businesses and online merchants across Canada with a “mission to advance the interests of the retail industry.”

Here at NYGÅRD, Peter Nygård has been passionate about fashion retail and about his employees for the last 50 years, so it is only fitting that we welcomed the RCC to our Inkster location for lunch in PARK50 and a tour of GALLERY50 & our facilities.

Here are some photos of the afternoon!
