CORNWALL – Home improvement retailer Lowe’s is closing 31 Canadian stores and 20 in the United States.

The locations are seen as under-performing and the company wants to focus on its most profitable operations.

Cornwall is not on the list of nine stores in Ontario that will close by Feb. 1, 2019. The only Eastern Ontario location is on Bath Road in Kingston.

Lowe’s opened the Cornwall location at 950 Brookdale Avenue in 2016 – the same year it bought competitor Rona.
