MAP: These are the Rona and Lowe’s stores closing in February

Thirty-one Rona and Lowe’s hardware stores are closing in 2019, the company announced Monday during a “strategic reassessment.”

The company named 27 affected stores are from New Westminster, B.C., Calgary, Alta., along with various locations in Ontario and Newfoundland. That amounts toto about three per cent of the company’s Canadian footprint.

They will be closed by Feb. 1, 2019.

“The decision was informed by the strategic reassessment work we have been doing over the last few months. … We plan to continue to evaluate all businesses and elements of our portfolio annually,” the company told Reuters.

There is so far no news on how many employees will be affected or let go because of the closures.

“Everything will be done to ensure a smooth transition until the stores are closed, and Lowe’s Canada will support impacted employees, including by transferring eligible employees to other locations within our network whenever possible,” said Sylvain Prud’homme, chief executive of Lowe’s Canada, in a statement.
