The Brick had a pre-opening event on Thursday in anticipation for their official grand opening today at noon. The new furniture store at 1731 Kenaston Blvd. had mascots Buzz and Boomer from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on hand, as well as Mayor Sam Katz to help cut the ceremonial ribbon.
I almost missed this photo op completely when I was in the back of the store munching on the delicious catered hors d’oeuvres from Calabria Market. The lighting wasn’t too great, as you can tell. I don’t think Mayor Katz could stand to open his eyes for too long due to the sun.
Overall, the opening was a success. There was entertainment provided and some stellar deals to be had. As voice-over guy David Kaye says in the commercials, “Nobody beats The Brick.”
