Lowe’s Canada to open “new concept” stores

BURLINGTON, Ont. — Lowe’s will hold grand openings for two more stores in Canada on February 6. One of them is here in Burlington, west of Toronto, and the other is in Cambridge, Ont. The stores promise to be “a new concept store experience” that will be unveiled by Lowe’s Canada president Sylvain Prud’homme.

Based on customer feedback, Lowe’s has developed a new store experience that will, it claims, improve convenience through merchandise adjacencies, allow customers to see  products as they would appear in a home, and improve store navigation through new signage. The stores will also offer onsite home improvement skills training for DIYers.
