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.

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.

Peter Nygard and his experiences on the road to fame.

After graduating from the University of North Dakota in 1964, Peter Nygard wasted little time in putting his business degree to use.

He borrowed $8,000 in 1967, then used that money plus his savings to buy a 20-percent share of a small manufacturer of women’s apparel.

Within a few years, Nygard owned the company. He transformed it into Nygård International, a company that today boasts studios and stores throughout North America and Asia and is one of the largest women’s clothing manufacturers and suppliers in the world.

The son of Finnish immigrants of modest means, Nygard rose to the status of visionary in the clothing industry.

Throughout his career, Nygard seems to have followed a dictum that now graces his company’s website: “You don’t know how far you can go until you push the limits.”

So far, Nygard has gone strong for 50 years. In the wake of this 50-year professional anniversary, UND Today caught up with Nygard to talk about his alma mater and his experiences on the road to fame.
