Griffith, December 17, 2018 – BMR Group is proud to announce that Griffith Building Supply, located in Griffith, Ontario, has joined its network as a BMR Pro dealer. BMR’s long-standing customer, General Contractor John Lacourse, who recently became co-owner of the store with Derek McGrimmon, naturally turned to BMR to give the renovation centre new life.

“I’ve always been very pleased with BMR’s prices and products, so I decided to own a BMR myself! Their new BMR Pro banner perfectly meets my needs, and their knowledge of all things related to building materials gives me peace of mind for what’s to come,” said Lacourse.

More materials through store expansion

Aside from the store’s facade and interior layout, which will be completely redesigned, the 1,500 sq. ft. store will double in size with the construction of a new 2,000 sq. ft. space. The expansion, which is already underway, will provide more storage space so that the store can offer a wider range of construction materials.

“Building materials are one of our greatest strengths, and we look forward to serving our local contractors and renovators. The BMR logo will guarantee high quality and fair prices. What’s more, most of the products we offer are manufactured here in Canada,” said Pierre Nolet, Vice-President of Business Development at BMR Group.

The hardware store will feature the BMR Pro banner, an iteration of the traditional BMR banner developed to meet the needs of construction and renovation professionals, as well as seasoned do-it-yourselfers.
