Fields store glad to be back in Burns Lake

Fields re-opened the doors on their location in Burns Lake.

Fields re-opened the doors on their location in Burns Lake, under new ownership, bringing back a much-missed resource for the town and its surrounding communities.

This is the 60 store opened by the Fields Holding Company (FHC) after acquiring the Fields brand from previous owners, HBC.

“Fields has been an important part of many communities across Western Canada for many years,” says FHC President, Jason McDougall. “We’re excited to be opening this store and will work to ensure people are able to get what they need in their local communities.”

In addition to the 57 stores acquired from HBC in May 2012, FHC is opening six Fields store locations across Western Canada this year, including Mackenzie, Burns Lake and Gold River in British Columbia, Eckville in Alberta, and Tisdale and Unity in Saskatchewan.

“We are excited to be a part of these communities, and each one is very different,” continues McDougall. “To make sure we’re supporting them and contributing in a positive way, we’re putting a lot of focus on the specific needs of each one to offer real value through our products and pricing.”

Fields has been part of the landscape of Western Canada for over 60 years, beginning in 1950 with the first store in Vancouver. Over the years the merchandise assortment has evolved to include value-priced housewares, hardware, toys and food items as well as family clothing.
