Our Story

lori-bacon-headshot-swimcoMy mom started Swimco in 1975 as a mail-order swimwear company out of our basement, and she always taught me to treat our customers as friends. Although we’ve become Western Canada’s leading swimwear retailer, our core values remain the same. It’s still about making our customers feel confident in swimwear, so they can be free to enjoy some of the best experiences of their lives. Thank you for making us a part of your adventures.

Lori Bacon, President, Swimco

    We added more stores, including a location in Red Deer, Alberta. We had grown into a company with 14 stores and over 150 employees.

    We launched our web store in 2014 so we could share our belief with all Canadians. We believe that everyone and every  body  deserves to feel good in a swimsuit, and now everyone can shop our diverse collection of styles and sizes. It is important to us to offer customers what they expect and so we invested in an advanced web design that allows people to mix and match tops and bottoms, even between brands.

Styles vary by location.
