Swimco Celebrates Family Values and 1st Anniversary in Coquitlam Centre

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 10, 2011) - May 12, 2011 marks the 1st anniversary of Western-Canadian swimwear retailer Swimco in Coquitlam Centre. The company's decision to expand into Coquitlam, B.C. was based on market potential, and also their compatibility with the city's culture.

Says Swimco President Lori Bacon, "As a family-owned business, we connect with Coquitlam's strong family values. Our product selection and style of service caters to that young family demographic, which is evident in the success of our Coquitlam Centre store."

Kathleen Hernandez, who manages Swimco's Coquitlam Centre location, has received encouraging feedback from her customers. "New moms are happy to come to a store that carries swimwear they'll feel comfortable in. Their bodies have undergone a lot of changes in a short period of time, so the trick is to give them the coverage and support they want, while still making them feel sexy. They don't want the string bikini, but they don't want the "frumpy mum" suit either!"

In celebration of their 1st anniversary in Coquitlam Centre, Swimco is giving away a $250 Swimwear Shopping Spree. Customers can enter the contest at Swimco's Coquitlam Centre location until May 12, 2011.

Swimco's mission is to continue their long-standing tradition of instilling confidence in customers by providing them with swimwear that makes them look and feel their best. Swimco has 14 stores, with its head office in Calgary, Alberta. For more information, visit www.swimco.com.
