West Marine Plans Grand Opening for New Oakville, ON Location


West Marine has moved its retail location in Oakville to 485 Trafalgar Rd., in the Olde Oakville Plaza. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for August 8 to 9 that will include a silent auction to raise proceeds for Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.

The new location will benefit from improved visibility along with increased floor space from 5,500 square feet to 6,000 square feet.

According to store manager Amy Pedersen, the grand opening will feature a small boat show, prize give-a-ways (including t-shirts and $100 West Marine gift cards), a silent auction for charity, demonstrations by vendors including ICOM Canada and Mustang Survival, a boat maintenance demo and several exhibitors.
