AUBREY MARGOLIS, OWNER
How long have you been at Danali?
I worked at Danali on Bell Ave for 2 years in 1982-83 before purchasing the store in August of 1986. So 35 years total.
What is your favourite part of working at Danali and why?
I love the relationships that I have been privileged to make over the years. It is an honour to be myself in a work environment I created for the enjoyment of our clients. I feel like I am the most blessed, fortunate person to find the right career for me, so that work doesn’t feel like work. I love being here and what I do - surrounded by family and friends in a welcoming setting, every day. I am so proud of each and every one of my staff and the steps they have taken to get here, and what those who have moved on have accomplished since. I believe the values and ethics embodied by Danali are reflected not only in myself, but within each member of our team and that level of respect lasts throughout a lifetime.
What are your favourite places in Winnipeg?
My kitchen. My backyard. Leo Mol Sculpture Garden and 529 patio in the summertime.
Who is your biggest inspiration?
My family. I love and cherish the amount of time I get to spend with them, whether together at work or on our regular travels together.
Some Words of Inspiration to Young Entrepreneurs…
Be willing to put the work in to make your dreams come true. I was 23 without much of an education when I took this leap and have never looked back. Through hard work and determination to succeed, Danali is the continually growing success that I envisioned when I began.
