The business community in Morden grew on Friday as the Great Canadian Dollar Store officially opened its doors to the public.

"We figured it was a spot that seemed a little bit underserved in the retail sector," said one of the owners Owen Reimer.

He added the ownership group got the sense many larger corporate brands were going to Winkler and overlooking Morden.

"We thought Morden would be a good place to start," said Reimer who is working toward opening a number of stores in Manitoba.

The store is located in Unit G - 886 Thornhill Street which is near the west end of the City. The new story has around 3,600 sq. ft.

"We have fleece throws, we have baskets, we actually have sheet sets that are a great price and quality," said Reimer. "We have lots of home decor items as well, kids toys and do some key cutting."

He said so far the response from patrons has been positive and is looking forward to serving the people of Morden and surrounding area.

"We are going to make sure we keep it well stocked," said Reimer. ''We understand that the last thing people want to do is come to a store like ours and see the shelves bare. We want to make sure there are enough variety and stock for everyone to find something they want."

The store will be open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. and 12 p.m. until 6 p.m. on Sunday.'
