CORNWALL, Ontario – BMR Group is pleased to announce that a new dealer has joined its network: the Cornwall BMR store. Celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the family-owned company is known in the area for its wide selection of products, its outstanding customer service, and its competitive pricing.
After retailing under the Rona banner for more than 32 years, owners Roy and Muriel Perkins decided to join BMR Group because of the support offered to dealers and the competitive pricing.
“We are very happy to be part of the BMR family and are eager to roll out the brand in our area. The expertise of BMR Group’s staff as well as its line of products will allow us to continue to offer our customers a customized service. We look forward to many great years with BMR,” said Roy Perkins, co-owner of the BMR Cornwall store.
“Our expansion in Eastern Canada goes smoothly with the addition of the Cornwall BMR Perkins store. With recent stores joining us in Kemptville, Hawkesbury, and Winchester, it is clear that the BMR network is very welcoming to independent dealers looking for a local partner. Our new CEO, Alexandre Lefebvre, has
brought a new vision of our current and future dealers’ needs,” explained Jonathan Gendreau, Vice President Business Development, Marketing and Customer Experience at BMR Group.
