Red Apple (formerly The Bargain! Shop) held its grand opening on Saturday in Port Hardy with a ribbon cutting and speeches from local community members, before customers entered the building to see what the newly renovated store now has to offer.
“I know the importance of good retailers and new shops to the wellbeing of the town, so I’m here to congratulate Red Apple, Michelle and her team – good luck to all,” said Mayor Hank Bood during a brief speech before the ribbon was cut.
Red Apple Manager Michelle Payie said people can expect “more brands, new brand names, it’s well organized, lower shelves, and it’s inviting.”
She added they can now get more items in and have more merchandise on display due to the renovations, and that customer satisfaction will always be the most important thing to Red Apple.
“Our stores are filled with all of the brands that our Customers want, at prices that offer huge savings everyday,” said Clinton Wolff, President and Chief Executive Officer pf Red Apple Stores Inc, in a press release. “We are proud to be a part of the Port Hardy’s community and look forward to providing our Customers with great value, big brands and a warm and welcoming shopping experience.”
