Bargain hunters now have a fifth Value Village location to shop at as of Thursday, when the retailer opened its newest Winnipeg store in Unicity.

The new store at 3629 Portage Avenue held a fashion show on Wednesday evening to show off its items.

The preview event was in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg and featured Anthony Polvorosa — a well-known figure in the local fashion community. BBBS of Winnipeg is the retailer’s signature non-profit partner.
