Winners opens its doors in Mission

Store is located in The Junction Shopping Centre

For many Mission consumers, the wait is finally over.

The new Winners store officially opened its doors today (March 30) at 9 a.m.

A small, socially distanced crowd waited outside as dignitaries said a few words before letting the people inside.

Mission’s acting-mayor for the month of March, Ken Herar, was on hand to say a few words.

“Today is a major highlight in building a complete community, not only for our local residents but also attracting those outside our limits. This opening is a game changer, which elevates Mission to a new synergy while creating employment for many, establishing a new level of confidence,” said Herar.

According to a press release, the new store will offer over 17,000 square feet of “designer and brand name merchandise for less than department and specialty store prices, every day. The store will feature fashions for the entire family as well as, jewelry, accessories and gift ware.”

The new Mission Winners will follow newly established health protocols, including new cleaning regimens, required use of face coverings, and encouraging social distancing throughout stores.

“With the grand opening of the new Mission location, Winners is meeting consumer demand for quality brand name merchandise,” said Erin O’Brien, Winners spokesperson. “Our newest store will offer shoppers the designer names they know and trust, at prices well below department and specialty stores. With premier beauty, accessories and fashion arriving daily, the thrill of the find has never been better!”

To mark the grand opening of the Mission store, Winners will donate $5,000 to SARA for Women as part of their new charitable initiative, Find Your Stride.

The new Mission store is located in The Junction Shopping Centre, beside the Canadian Tire building.
