Lowe’s Shutting Down 34 Canadian Stores

Closures will start in January.

34 stores owned by Lowe’s are slated to be shut in Canada, starting in January.

26 of those stores are Rona locations.

In a statement, Lowe’s Canada president Tony Cioffi said the following:

“While making decisions that impact our associates and their families is never easy, closing underperforming stores is a necessary step in our plan to ensure the long-term stability and growth of our Canadian business. We are taking decisive action to build a healthy business which will provide us with the flexibility to reinvest in our future growth. This includes having a clear strategy for our banners, built on the strength of our Lowe’s, RONA and Reno-Depot brands.”

The company says some employees will be able to request a transfer to other stores.

Another Trudeau accomplishment. Barbie told us the Climate Tax will be good for the economy and create jobs. The Canadian economy is collapsing, fueled by the most corrupt political party and the most corrupt Government in Canadian history and the Media are worried about offending “you people”.

With the cool weather this winter, I wonder how… Read more »

Lots more out of work, these big companies take a lot of employees and their families down with them as they adjust to their over spending on taking down smaller businesses as they expand.

You know, once upon a time the person that scouted areas and territories for new stores was vital and the person had to really know what they were doing with a lot of research and experience under their belt.
