BOUCHERVILLE, Que. — The Reno-Depot in Gatineau, Que., is the latest store to move to the banner’s new store model, Lowe’s Canada has announced. The company invested some $3.7 million in the 12-week renovation, which included redesigning all departments and revamping signage for the new-look Reno-Depot. The store includes a 110,000-square-foot sales floor and a 30,000-square-foot garden centre, and offers one of the widest ranges of appliances in the area, according to a company release.
