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.”
