RONA adds new dealer in Nova Scotia

A new RONA store, MSJ Building Supplies, has opened in Barrington Passage, N.S.

The new store features 5,025 square feet of sales space and a 148,000-square-foot lumber yard. It represents a $350,000 local investment and created 10 jobs.

“We are delighted to be working with Tom MacDonell (shown right) and [store manager] Jim Allair (left),” said Philippe Element, VP sales and dealer support. “They both have many years of retail experience in home improvement, but above all, they share the same entrepreneurial passion as RONA.”
