Our Sales Team
Laurie and I are proud of our sales team. These ladies are not only excellent at assisting our customers with the perfect outfit for any occasion, but will be honest if something is not quite flattering to your body type. They are fun, confident, and kind. AND they all love fashion!
We would like to introduce you to our team , and help you get to know them.
Developing a relationship with our customers is important to all of us.
Shauna Hlady (Co-owner)
I was a flight attendant with Air Canada for 33 years and loved every minute of it. I was lucky enough to shop in many cities and countries which was the start of my passion for fashion and the retail industry as a whole.
After retirement I started with a summer operation on my property on the Lee River , just outside of Lac du Bonnet(Lee River Design & Gifts). After 10 years of operation I decided to extend my business to Winnipeg ( Provencher Ave). Running both stores became too much and the merge with Great Finds has become the best business decision I’ve made . ( The LDB store still operates from May to Thanksgiving)
Laurie and I share a great passion for the industry and our customers. We look for unique , high quality clothing and accessories. Beauty comes in all sizes and we are proud to offer our customers with fashions from X-Small to 3X.
Laurie Carey (Co-owner)
I’ve been working in retail my entire career and have always enjoyed serving my clients. My first foray into business ownership was over twenty years ago as a franchisee. The grand opening of Great Finds in 2003 was the realization of my dream to open an independent lady’s fashion store that I was confident would fill a need in the marketplace for outstanding customer service. The grand opening of Great Finds Lee River was the logical next step when Shauna and I recognized our common vision and the opportunity to leverage our different strengths to achieve something we would not have been able to achieve on our own. Our mission is to delight all of the our loyal customers and to attract all of those customers that have yet to experience but that we know will appreciate our great staff and exceptional customer service. I love putting things together, be it gardening, decorating or fashion. If I am away from the store, I am in my garden, spending time with family or traveling with my best friend and hubby Jim.
Nancy Brown (Sales Associate)
I have been married for 30 years and have 2 beautiful children. I love to be active and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. In my spare time I enjoy baking/ cooking with whole foods as a focus and have been a personal trainer for 11 years. Also I enjoy entertaining with wonderful family and friends.
I have been with our boutique since August 2016 enjoying my passion for fashion. I always look forward to meeting new customers and finding them the perfect outfit that is just for them. It is the best feeling when you see the joy on my customers ‘ faces as they feel amazing in their new outfits. Our boutique has something for everyone!
Leni Lousier (Sales Associate)
I retired after 30 years with RBC. I love working with people. This, combined with my love of clothing and helping ladies put together a great look with clothing and accessories is a passion of mine. Helping my sister in her clothing business has given me the experience to do what I love. We are all different. I love showing a client new designs that take them out of their comfort zone …..sometimes we laugh, but often we are beautifully surprised! Most of all I want to be honest with women…..tell you what looks best, what colours and designs work for you. When you leave the store we want you to feel beautiful!
Peggy Zacharias (Sales Associate)

I love helping people and my forever love of clothing, shoes, purses and jewellery gives me a desire to want to help others look good by finding just the right piece. Working at Great Finds &Lee River is a great place to work, meet, and help a lot of women look their best !
