Home Hardware strengthens its Quebec base

ST. JACOBS, Ont. — Home Hardware Stores Ltd. has welcomed three new members in Quebec. Dealer-owner Jean-Claude Parr’s L’Acadien Bricoleur is opening a fifth location in Gentilly, under the Home Hardware Building Centre format. Another Home Hardware Building Centre, Matériaux Marquette in Baie-Comeau, is the second location for Matériaux Manic. Michel Charette and his wife Élise Caron are re-opening a site vacated by another banner to service the community’s home improvement needs. At Centre de Renovation Saint-Paulin in Saint-Paulin, Dominic Crête and Dany Garand have converted from another independent group to the Home Hardware banner. “Success in retail is about finding the right people who will deliver the right customer service experience,” said Luc Martin, Home’s senior business development manager. “In addition to our national footprint, these stores represent our commitment to better serving the industry.”
