At their annual trade show banquet last night, the Luggage, Leather, Handbags, and Accessories Association (LLHA) honored Journeys Travel & Leisure SuperCentre (www.journeystravelgear.com) with their award for Retailer Of The Year.
LLHA is composed of manufacturers and distributors of the major brand products that fill luggage and department stores in Canada.
Each year these companies display their current and newest products at a trade show in Toronto at the Congress Centre.
Retailers from across Canada attend and place order for their sales needs for much of the year ahead.
President of Journeys, Ron Pradinuk, said his company was successful in no small part to the buying abilities of his daughter Hilary Pradinuk, and the sales abilities and consistent belief in the Journeys concept by his wife Rae O’Keefe.
Journeys Travel & Leisure SuperCentre is the one stop travel centre in Winnipeg that includes not only luggage and travel accessories, but a full service travel agency www.renaissancetravel.ca , swimwear, travel clothing, tannning beds and a pre-travel health clinic.
