RONA inc. Announces New Structure to Strengthen its Position on the Market
This change resulted in the elimination of 500 positions within the RONA network in Canada
Boucherville, QC, June 15, 2023 – RONA inc., one of Canada’s leading home improvement retailers operating or servicing some 425 corporate and affiliated stores under different banners, has decided to simplify its organizational structure to strengthen its position on the market and be more efficient.
In light of the current economic downturn, RONA, like other organizations that recently announced restructurings, needed to adapt to reflect new market realities. The organization firmly believes that its transition plan aimed at positioning RONA as the leader of the Canadian home improvement industry will support its viability and benefit stakeholders in the long run.
This resulted in the elimination of 500 positions within the RONA network in Canada. Decisions like these are never taken lightly as they impact the organization’s employees and their families. Employees affected by this change will be supported throughout this transition. The company’s head office will remain in Boucherville, on the South Shore of Montréal.
With this new structure, RONA, who has been serving Canadians for close to 85 years, since its founding in Québec in 1939, wants to further simplify the way it operates to reinvest in this strong and vibrant brand and create new opportunities to improve how Canadians shop for home improvement.
