LAVAL, QC, March 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Mr. Yves Gagnon, president and chief
executive officer of Groupe BMR Inc., is pleased to announce the inauguration
of a new banner specialized in hardware products.
"This new banner will allow us to widen our network of retailers and to
occupy an important niche in both rural and urban areas. This strategic
initiative could not be more timely, as in just one month it has attracted a
dozen new retailers to our group. It is interesting to note that our newcomers
have joined us from Ontario and Atlantic Canada as much as from Québec. This
new option is the perfect answer to the needs of a great many independent
retailers, and of course to the needs of their customers" said Yves Gagnon.
Founded in 1967, BMR is a group of merchants who together operate some
170 renovation centers and hardware stores throughout Quebec, Ontario, Nova
Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Annual retail sales for the
BMR group are estimated at about 1.2 billion dollars. BMR Le Groupe is the
second largest retail renovation group in Québec.
