Nygard celebrating 50 years in fashion

In celebration of 50 years in business Nygard International showed off its $5 million makeover at its 1771 Inkster Boulevard location in Winnipeg, Canada last Friday. 

The facility’s exterior was completely redone and the building is now home to an extensive museum chronicling its history as well as founder Peter Nygard’s life. The museum includes the Nygard family homestead from Deloraine, which was their home when they came to Canada, as well as artifacts from his life and clothing the company has designed and produced through the decades.

The celebration coincides with the company’s two-week product development conference with suppliers and vendors from China, Jordan, Indonesia, Finland, Bangladesh and the U.S. attending.

“This initiative once again shows and cements Nygard’s substantial and enduring commitment to Manitoba,” said Sharon Clark, Nygard’s vice-president of communications and public relations. “We have continuously invested in our local economy by enhancing the geographic, business and social landscape of Winnipeg and most importantly, by investing in the people of Winnipeg and Manitoba.”

Nygard International was founded on Winnipeg’s Adelaide Street and now employs more than 1,500 people.
