Cornwall, May 6, 2022 — It is with great pride that BMR Group officially opened the Perkins Home Centre Ltd. Lumber & Building Material-Hardware store, which has been operating under the BMR banner since March 2022.

Last Fall, the Perkins family decided to look at some new buying group options. After more than 30 years with the same network, they felt a change would be beneficial for their customers and their staff. Their priority was, a Canadian partner with strong roots in lumber, building material and hardware, where the customer is the priority. After reviewing the different options, they found BMR to be the best fit.

“I couldn’t be happier to be part of the large and strong BMR Group network. It is a well-established local brand in which I have tremendous confidence and, since the beginning, this company has given me great support,” says Roy Perkins, owner of the store.

“We are very proud to welcome Mr. Perkins and his company and to extend our network of dealers in Ontario. It will help us better meet the needs of our customers in this region and promote our brand. We look forward to working with Mr. Perkins and show him all the benefits of BMR Group,” adds Jonathan Gendreau, Vice President, Business Development, Marketing and Customer Experience.

The citizens of Cornwall and the area have access not only to the most common hardware products, but also to superior quality products available at competitive prices, highly personalized service, and great deals that will suit their needs.

The store grand opening was celebrated with the Mayor of Cornwall, BMR representatives, the store customers, the relatives and close friends of the owners, and all the staff.

The festivities continue this weekend!
