The New and IMPROVED Marks Work Warehouse!
Here I am for another lovely event on behalf of Julie. Have I mentioned how much I love my “job”?
If you are Canadian, you are probably familiar with Marks Work Warehouse. But did you know they’re getting a new look and rebranding? I got to attend one of the grand opening events and I was quite curious to see what was to come. Sharing a little secret with you- I’ve been going to Marks for years. And now that they are branching out with their new brand- I can see myself going much more frequently!
(Here I am, wearing my new favourite shirt. I never would have picked this colour for me, but I love it. I always get complimented whenever I wear it. Excuse the look on my face, I was only taking a picture to get help with my wardrobe for an event I was attending)
During this rebrand, they’re starting to shift their focus from mens clothes (how it started out) to both genders. You’ll find pretty much everything there- shoes, clothes, uniforms, socks, etc. They are also very committed about standing behind their products.
The first thing we saw were waterproof jeans. Instead of the water seeping into your jeans, it beads on the surface to keep you dry. That’s a pretty awesome thing to see. It reminded me of the summers my parents put waterseal our deck and watching the rain bead on the boards.
In some of the selected stores, they actually have a winter simulator. When I put that fact with a picture I took, many people laughed saying that we already know what winter is like. This is just another way the company is showing what’s new. Inside the simulator, it reaches a temperature of -40 C (that’s including the windchill) One of the people in my group was asked to put one of their winter jackets on to test it out. Even though he wasn’t in there for very long, he said the only place he felt the cold was on his face. Makes sense since it isn’t covered!
