RONA show focuses on independents

MONTREAL — The latest RONA show continues to establish a renewed commitment to its independent dealer base.

The show marks the first time that RONA has mounted a true buying show; in the past the shows have presented the latest products and merchandising on behalf of its corporate stores. This time, 250 vendors participated in a more conventional way, with booths of their own offering a wider range of products.

According to Luc Rodier, SVP of RONA, the show enjoyed a strong turnout, with 90% of its dealer base in Quebec attending, and 80% nationally.
