First BMR Pro opens in Ontario

BOUCHERVILLE, Que. ― BMR Group last weekend held the official opening of Ontario’s first BMR Pro, Griffith Building Supply, in Greater Madawaska township. “We are very happy, and especially very proud, to open the first BMR Pro store in Ontario,” Pierre Nolet, BMR’s VP of business development, said in a release. “We are honoured to partner with a highly qualified and devoted team at Griffith Building Supply, which is without a doubt an important ally in Ontario.” Owners John Lacourse and Derek McGrimmon unveiled the new look of the store. A new 2,000-square-foot area has been built to store more products and offer an expanded line of materials. Mayor Brian Hunt, provincial Natural Resources Minister John Yakabuski and local MP Cheryl Gallant joined BMR Group representatives and store employees and customers for the opening. The first Quebec store for the contractor-oriented BMR Pro banner is already under construction in Trois-Rivières, with an opening scheduled for late summer.
