The new Fields store held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate its opening.

New ownership, new location for Fields

After a short absence, Fields has returned to Langley

After a short absence, Fields is returning to Langley.

The store will be at a new location — #5 20555 56 Ave. — and under new but familiar ownership.

“We always enjoyed serving the Langley community but wanted to streamline and get everything all under one banner,” said Jason McDougall, the president of Fields Holding Company.

“So we have a good history of good customer relations in the community.”

McDougall previously owned McFrugal’s Discount Outlet, which was in the same building that Fields now occupies.

“I knew we would like to get back in the community,” he said.

In May of 2012, FHC purchased 57 stores from HBC and they have since opened additional locations throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. The Langley store is the 64th location in Western Canada.

The newest location had a ribbon cutting yesterday (Wednesday) morning.

“Fields has been an important part of many communities across Western Canada for many years,” McDougall said. “We are excited to be opening this store and will work to ensure people are able to get what they need in their local communities.”

“We are excited to be a part of these communities, and each one is very different,” McDougall said.

“To make sure we’re supporting them and contributing in a positive way, we’re putting a lot of focus on the specific needs of each one to offer real value through our products and pricing.”

“This is a newer, fresher type of Fields,” he added.

“One that has a little bit more entrepreneurial flair and more brands.”

The Langley Fields is in an 8,000 square foot building and has seven full and part-time employees.
