Not good news for the home renovators out there as retailer Lowe’s announces it is closing 31 locations in Canada, including 27 low performing Lowe’s and Rona stores in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland and Labrador, along with 20 locations in the U.S.


The closures  announced today are “part of its ongoing strategic reassessment” of its business says the company.  The good news?  It looks like the stores  locally in niagara will not be affected at this time.  Stores set to shut in Ontario include:

Rona at 1133 Dundas Street West, Mississauga.
Rona at1692 Lakeshore Rd, Mississauga.
Rona at 132 Black Road, Sault Ste. Marie.
Rona at 943 Barry Downe Road, Sudbury.
