Rona sold to Lowe's

So I hear that Lowe's Canada has purchased Rona? Never did like Rona. Prices are higher than a lot of other stores, the employees are hard to find, lack of stock. Messy, dirty, dusty. Bird poop all over the place, damaged stock on the floor. As for Lowe's, went into the stores in the U.S. Not impressed.

I do not think the deal has been finalized as of yet. They cut 200 jobs across Canada. I know the Sargent store cut 4 Supervisor positions and let go the rest of the early morning day crew that was hired in Nov. 2012. They let the last 3 go at the beginning of April. Rona is keeping the part time staff only.

That's not good. It's never nice to see people lose their jobs.

So this explains why Pav Old Chum was laid off from Rona. I suspect Lowe's is just trimming the fat, so they appear more appealing to shareholders.

If they had a lot of employees like Pav/Chum it's no wonder they got into trouble. That guy's a certified idiot...an illiterate dreg.

Far too much retail in the city. Cannot be sustained by the population and has only been supported by people using their homes as ATMs. Those days are coming to an end...soon.
