RONA Val-des-Monts celebrates grand opening

BOUCHERVILLE, Que. ― Lowe’s Canada last week celebrated the grand opening of the new home of its RONA Val-des-Monts affiliated dealer in Val-des-Monts, Que. The result of a $3.5 million investment, the new store has added 15 new jobs to the 10 existing positions. “Meeting the needs of our customers is our priority. To continue doing this, we needed to increase our retail space. For us, building a new store was the obvious choice,” said Claude Bélec and Chantal Veilleux, owners of RONA Val-des-Monts, in a release. “Thanks to the help of our partners and RONA experts, we were able to make our project a reality within the set deadlines. Along with providing thousands of new products including an appliance selection in-store and online, we now offer services valued by professional and retail customers.” The new 22,000-square-foot building, which is 19,000 square feet bigger than the old one, boasts a 7,000-square-foot indoor lumber yard and a 60,000-square-foot drive-through outdoor lumber yard. The extra space allows the store to offer 10,000 additional products, bringing the total number of offerings to 17,500.
