Lowe’s Canada’s new DC will be biggest in Western Canada

BOUCHERVILLE, Que. — Lowe’s Canada has unveiled plans to open a giant distribution centre in the greater Calgary area. The facility, which will be 1.23 million square feet in size, is expected to open in the fall of 2021 and represent a total joint investment of more than $120 million.

The DC will become part of a network supplying more than 470 corporate and affiliated stores under Lowe’s Canada’s different banners. Calgary-based Highfield Investment Group, which manages residential and commercial real estate, has entered into a definitive agreement for the construction of the new DC in the High Plains Industrial Park, in Rocky View County northeast of Calgary. The area is considered a hub in the West for distribution centres and e-commerce fulfillment facilities. The Lowe’s facility will reportedly be the largest leased DC in Western Canada. Construction is slated to begin this month.
