RONA affiliate celebrates grand openings in B.C.

BOUCHERVILLE, Que. — Lowe’s Canada announced the grand opening of Fraser Valley Building Supplies’ new RONA stores in the West Kootenays. The company acquired the Maglio Building Centres earlier this year and converted the Nelson (pictured) and Trail, B.C., stores, to the RONA banner. The conversion process represented a local investment of approximately $500,000. To mark the grand opening of both stores under the RONA banner, Fraser Valley Building Supplies held board cutting ceremonies last week in the presence of customers and local dignitaries. “We are looking forward to welcoming customers in their new RONA stores so they can discover our enhanced offering, which includes a selection of appliances and the iconic Craftsman brand,” said FVBS President Ray Cyr. Together, the RONA Trail and RONA Nelson stores feature approximately 35,000 square feet of retail sales area as well as five acres of lumberyard, with some 30,000 products on offer in store and online.
