The company intends to conduct store-closing sales for most of the impacted locations, with the exception of select stores in the USA that will close immediately.

Home improvement retailer Lowe's Companies Inc announced on Monday that it planned to close 31 underperforming stores in Canada and 20 stores in the United States in relation with restructuring efforts. The company says the locations are under performing and a majority are within 10 miles of another Lowe's location.

A RONA spokesperson said, however, that the lumberyard section of the Bath Road location will remain open as a support to the larger Home and Garden RONA on Princess Street, which won't be affected by the string of closures. (The company did not respond to a request for comment.)

You can find a list of Lowe's closure here. The company is also in the process of converting a Rona store on Lagimodiere Boulevard into a Lowe's. Lowe's added that it would provide additional details about the effect of the store closings in the next quarterly earnings release slated for November 20. Most employees will be allowed to transfer to a different store in some cases, it said.

But Lowe's is struggling to keep up with Home Depot.

US senator says China, US competitors but not adversaries
But just this week, we indicted 10 Chinese for stealing intellectual property. " Trump said the two countries have a chance to make a fair deal".

The company said in its announcement it will focus on its profitable stores and "improve the overall health of its store portfolio".

Ellison said the moves are part of a "transformation", but not a "turnaround" - like Plano, Texas, -based J.C. Penney experienced when he was the department store's chief executive for three years.

"In this transformation, we're going to focus on retail fundamentals first, and concurrently we're going to modernize this company from ... a digital and IT perspective and from a supply chain perspective, and we're going to create a truly great company", Ellison said.
