RONA is celebrating the make-over of its Salmon Arm store, which was acquired in April 2014 by Glacier Building Supplies Ltd. The 20,000-square-foot store underwent major renovations and remained open for business all along. The entire front façade was changed and now incorporates new signage. The inside was gradually entirely demolished and now features new shelving, racking, contract sales centre, service centre, paint centre, offices, washrooms and new floors. The store also includes a brand new greenhouse.

“We had extensive plans to upgrade the Salmon Arm premises and business operations and are happy to celebrate our new installations offering our customers an improved level of service, commitment and excellence that is the hallmark of the RONA brand,” said Lawrie Shears, director of operations for Glacier Building Supplies Ltd. “…While renovating is always ongoing, we strive to build on the company’s reputation of quality products, fair prices and awesome service. Our new look will help us accomplish this goal.”

The store has taken on 30 employees over the last year in order to better serve the needs of consumers.
