Founded in 1946, Lowe's has grown from a small town hardware store in North Carolina to the second largest home improvement retailer worldwide. Lowe's entered the Canadian market in 2007 and is currently the fastest growing home improvement retailer in Canada. With 40 store locations in 4 provinces, 6000 employees company wide and a popular ecommerce website, Lowe's Canada serves over 150,000 customers every day.
Lowe's continues to focus on its Canadian growth and bringing the Lowe's brand closer to the customer. In July 2015, we announced plans to open 14 new stores which will bring our total Canadian store count to 54 locations. The new stores will enhance Lowe's presence in Western Canada and strengthen its base in Ontario, creating 2,000 new jobs in Canada.
When Lowe's opens a new store, we invest in the community. We work hard to be a good neighbor and we're committed to supporting efforts that enrich the lives of our employees, our customers, and the communities in which we operate. Since entering Canada, Lowe's has invested in supporting community improvement projects, providing safe and affordable housing, and building interest and generating awareness amongst youth about skilled trades education and careers in Canada. Within these areas, Lowe's is primarily committed to supporting the projects that have the greatest impact in our communities, and that align with our core business of home improvement.
Although times have changed since we first opened our doors in Canada, Lowe's values have not: the company remains committed to offering a differentiated assortment of home improvement products, while delivering superior customer service.
