Lowe’s celebrates banner conversions

BOUCHERVILLE, Que. — Lowe’s Canada announced the conversion of the third RONA big box to move to the Lowe’s banner, in Calgary. The 16-week overhaul of the store included construction, departmental sequencing of new racking and re-merchandising, branding and IT conversion, and staff training. The Calgary store is reaching out to professional customers with a Contractor Rewards loyalty program, a drive-through lumber yard, and the option of a charge account with a single monthly invoice for purchases at all RONA corporate and new model Lowe’s stores.

Meanwhile, the former RONA Entrepôt in Sherbrooke has been converted  to the Réno-Dépôt banner, after a three-month renovation. “The Sherbrooke Réno-Dépôt is a one-of-a-kind concept that combines the essence of a conventional Réno-Dépôt store, the value-added RONA products and services that our local customers love, and new product categories, particularly in the appliances and seasonal departments,” Guy Beaumier, EVP of PRO and Réno-Dépôt, said in a statement.
