Winkler's recently renovated Canadian Lumber location celebrated its grand opening yesterday

Since 1987 Canadian Lumber has been serving the community of Winkler, and owner Henry Friesen is excited about the years ahead. He is celebrating a fresh, new look at the Winkler Canadian Lumber location this week, and taking time to say thanks. It was fitting an official 2x4 sawing replaced a ribbon cutting, and afterwards Friesen shared their focus over the years has been people.

He explains being a part of building a new home, or renovation project is nice, but it's the relationship built that really means something.

Friesen is excited about the changes to the Winkler store, and shares what they've added.

Looking to the future, Friesen says the unique store in Winkler will allow people to see, touch, and feel many products, and make wise purchasing decisions.

The grand re-opening celebration continues this week, and Saturday the community is invited to a barbeque at the store. Friesen says there will be a handyman competition, fun challenges for kids and teens, and the Winkler Flyers will be serving food. He notes it's also a fundraiser to help send kids to camp at Winkler Bible Camp, and Pembina Valley Bible Camp.
