ST. JACOBS, Ont. ― In the first half of 2018, Home Hardware Stores Limited more than doubled last year’s growth of Quebec store conversions. So far this year, it has welcomed eight new members, including one multi-store dealer, into the fold, for a total of 133 stores in the province. The new additions include L.D. Roy, Sainte-Perpétue; Riopel Centre de Rénovation, Sainte-Adèle; and Nemaska Home Hardware in Nemaska.
Another five Quebec locations belong to one dealer, Groupe Turcotte, a home improvement and garden centre retailer with more than 200 employees.
