Throwback Thursday: Ten years ago, Lowe’s Canada sharpened up its pro focus

Throwback Thursday is a regular feature in which we dip into the archives of the Hardlines Weekly Report.

In our Feb. 17, 2014, edition of the Hardlines Weekly Report we interviewed Sylvain Prud’homme, then president of Lowe’s Canada, at a tour of the new Burlington, Ont., Lowe’s store. Prud’homme talked about extensive research that had been undertaken about why contractors shopped—or chose not to shop—at Lowe’s Canada’s stores. The research was behind the changes that Lowe’s Canada had made to its contractor desk at this store.
