A new Work N Play store has opened in Blairmore.

The store opened on Saturday, January 23rd and offers a variety of work and casual clothing items.

Owners Gord and Laura Maljaars opened the store in the Pass after local residents travelling to their Lethbridge location began asking about a possible location opening in Blairmore.

“The Pass has had Work N Play before. There were two different locations of Work N Play at different points in the past. I own the Work N play in Lethbridge and have had many people from the Pass come in over the last few years.”

Laura says that after hearing requests for a location in the Pass and having customers from as far as BC coming to Lethbridge, it was the right time to open a second location.

“It is an exciting time in the Pass right now. We're hoping the Pass continues to grow. I have customers from as far as the Cranbrook area who had been coming into Lethbridge for Red Wing items. That's a huge reason why we decided to open a store in the Pass. We found that opening a store in this area would be worthwhile.”

Laura says there are many different items in the store but the majority is work wear.

“The majority of items in our store are work wear. We have a lot of Carharrt and Work King. We carry work boots as well. The biggest brand would be Red Wing and then we have Kean and Irish Setter as well. Those are the main work boot lines at this point. We also carry hikers and other stuff like that for men and women. We have dress/casual every day or office clothing as well.”

While Gord and Laura own the store, they decided to hire local.

“We hired two local ladies to work in the store. We own it from Lethbridge but we hired local people to work in the store.”

Laura hopes that the community will take the time to check out the store and see what’s all available.

“We want people to come in and try things out and see if there's anything for them. We have new shipments coming in every week so there are always new things coming in.”

The store is open 10am-6pm Mon-Thurs and 10am-5pm Fri-Sat and is located at 13147 20 Avenue Blairmore.
