Linda Proulx, the owner of Love Nest, did the first Love Nest home party in Winnipeg on June 6, 1983. Between 1983 and 1988 Linda had anywhere from 5 to 25 ladies in Winnipeg and rural Manitoba doing parties for her. While doing Home Parties Linda operated a store out of the basement of her St. Vital home until November of 1990. At that time, because of customer demand for a storefront operation with easy parking, Linda expanded Love Nest and opened the first store on St. Anne's Road in Winnipeg. The St. Anne's store was moved to a new larger location on St. Anne's Road on August 16, 1998.
Linda continued to have staff doing parties until 1997. At that time, the product line became so large in our stores, that it was impossible to choose which products to bring to the home parties, so the Home Party division of Love Nest was shut down. Love Nest's first Franchise Location was sold to Diane Houston in 1997 and a store was opened on Main Street. A third location, a franchise was opened at Portage and Westwood in December 1999. The franchise was bought back from the owners on August 1, 2002.
On May 16 2015 the St Anne's Road and Portage Avenues location amalgamated to a modern-more-spacious 1580 Taylor Avenue location.
Our two locations are bright and inviting and our well-trained staff do an excellent job of assisting all our customers with our very large selection of well-priced products..
