Home Hardware adds Lakehead store

ST JACOBS, Ont. — Home Hardware will acquire North American Lumber’s Red Lake store in Ear Falls, Ont., northwest of Thunder Bay. The news follows the winding down of North American Lumber’s retail operations in the spring. New owner J.D. Blazek is looking forward to taking advantage of more than 8,000 square feet of new retail and warehouse space. The store has served the Red Lake area for over 50 years.
