CORNWALL, Ontario – Cornwall’s newest large-scale hardware store is opening next week – with the help of a little celebrity.
Lowe’s has announced its grand opening events will run from May 5 to 8 at its new store on Brookdale Avenue in the former Walmart. On Saturday May 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. there will be an interactive autograph signing session with HGTV’s Bryan Baeumler.
Customers are being invited to free home improvement sessions, giveaways and contests throughout the four-day event.
Free $25 gift cards will be provided to the first 200 customers on May 8. Customers can also enter to win 1 of 5 Grand Prizes.
The new Cornwall Lowe’s is the company’s 43rd store in Canada, and the first location in the city. The store represents an approximate local investment in excess of $16 million and has created approximately 120-140 jobs, and additional 30-40 seasonal positions.
Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy will join Lowe’s employees on Thursday May 5th for an official board cutting and community grant donation presentation to Habitat for Humanity Seaway Valley.
