RONA announces layoffs, closure of two DCs

RONA inc. has announced that it will consolidate its distribution operations and streamline its structure.

The company says it has reviewed its national distribution operations, resulting in the closure of regular operations at its DC in Terrebonne, a suburb of Montreal in the North Shore region, in March. Its DC in Calgary, on 60th Street SE, will close in October 2024. Overall, RONA will be cutting 300 positions throughout its network.

EDITOR’S NOTE: A previous version of this story implied that RONA was cutting 300 positions strictly from its two DCs. Hardlines regrets the error.
