L’Entrepôt RONA In Sherbrooke To Be Converted To Réno-Dépôt Banner
Boucherville, Quebec, July 27, 2017 – Lowe's Canada announced today that the L'entrepôt RONA located at 3400 Portland Boulevard in Sherbrooke will be converted to the Réno-Dépôt banner. The store will undergo a major renovation and remerchandising project and consequently become the 22nd Réno-Dépôt store in Canada.
"Our analysis of the market in the greater Sherbrooke region has led us to conclude that given the established strength of the RONA banner in the surrounding area, consumers would benefit from increased diversification of the home improvement offer," said Guy Beaumier, Executive Vice President, Réno-Dépôt. "Réno-Dépôt contributes strategically to the strength of the Lowe's Canada network, and we are pleased to continue expanding this banner with this new address in Sherbrooke."
This project will include construction, modification of the pallet racks, re-merchandising and adjustment of the brand image. Once the conversion project is completed, individuals and commercial customers in the Sherbrooke area will find the same shopping experience and value proposition that they find at other big-box stores of this banner in Canada. The schedule for this major investment will be known in the coming months.
