BMR presents vendor, retailer awards

BMR Group held its annual gala Friday night at Quebec City’s Centre des congrès. Vendor awards were presented to Duchesne et fils (LBM), Ipex (hardware), Tolko (forest products), and Garant (agriculture/horticulture). Among BMR’s member retailers, Marianne and Mathieu Moisan of BMR Paulin Moisan were honoured with the Ambassador Award. (The Moisans were previously Young Retailers of the Year at the 2022 Outstanding Retailer Awards).

Finally, new dealers who joined BMR over the past year were inducted with a fun NHL-style “draft” announcement. The co-hosts of the fully bilingual event were strongman Hugo Girard and comedian Korine Côté. Some 1000 people attended this year’s gala, out of a record 1,500 participants in the 2023 Buying Show.
