Two home improvement stores in Greater Victoria are being converted from Lowe’s to Rona.
According to a press release from Rona, three Lowe’s stores on Vancouver Island – Nanaimo, Langford and Tillicum – are being converted to new ‘Rona-Plus’ branding.
Rona said the re-branding will happen “over the course of the coming weeks” and is part of a nationwide plan to switch over Lowe’s stores in Canada to Rona.
“This is an important step for the future of Rona,” said Andrew Iacobucci, CEO of Rona, in the release. “The conversions of Lowe’s stores represent a significant investment and a renewed commitment to the Rona brand.”
Rona added that stores will remain open during the conversion, guarantees offered by Lowe’s will be honoured and gift cards will be accepted.
Rona operates or services approximately 425 stores under different banners.
