Grand opening of newly renovated RONA Demers store in Debden, Saskatchewan
The team marked the occasion with a board cutting ceremony and BBQ celebration in the presence of local dignitaries and customers
Boucherville, QC – July 4, 2019 – Lowe’s Canada, one of Canada’s leading home improvement retailers, joins dealer owners Leah and Dean Demers in celebrating the grand opening of their newly renovated RONA building centre located at 201 Main Street in Debden, Saskatchewan. The store, which previously housed a grocery section, underwent major renovations over the past few months, more than doubling its sales area and significantly increasing its product selection. Today, local dignitaries and customers joined the RONA Demers team to mark the grand opening of the store with an official board cutting ceremony and BBQ celebration. Free iced treats and special prizes—including a $250 RONA gift card—were given away at the event.
“We have been working on this project for several months now and we are thrilled to welcome customers to our remodeled and larger RONA store,” declared Dean Demers. “By moving the grocery portion of the business to a new location next door, we now offer 10,000 sq. ft. of hardware retail area. This allowed us to add thousands of products to our selection and bring in completely new product categories such as appliances. Local homeowners and contractors can expect to see even more new features over the next few months as we are always looking to better serve our customers.”
“Dean and Leah have done amazing work in improving their store to better meet the home improvement and construction needs of the local community. They invested a lot of time, effort, and money to bring this project to life and provide added value to their customers. We are delighted to count them among our affiliated dealer family and look forward to supporting them with their future growth projects,” said Philippe Element, Vice-President, RONA & Ace Sales and Dealer Support.
