BMR Group and Unoria Cooperative inaugurate their new renovation center in Amqui

Amqui, May 29, 2023 – It is with great pride that BMR Group officially inaugurated, on Friday, May 26, the BMR Amqui hardware store, which has been operating under the BMR name for almost a year.

The hardware store was acquired in 2022 by Unoria Cooperative and then affiliated with BMR Group, after many years under another banner. This is a natural transition for Unoria Cooperative, which owns a network of 13 hardware stores in the Bas-Saint-Laurent and Gaspésie regions, operating under the BMR, BMR PRO and Agrizone banners.

"Unoria Cooperative is an important member of the great and beautiful family of BMR Group and we are delighted to see the company continue its expansion. BMR has been an economic player in the Bas-Saint-Laurent and Gaspésie regions for decades and we are pleased to be able to offer the citizens of the region quality products, personalized services and exceptional customer service. mentioned Alexandre Lefebvre, Chief Executive Officer of BMR Group.

"We are happy to strengthen our position in La Matapédia in order to offer high quality service to our members and clients and we are even more confident to evolve within the large and strong network of BMR Group. It is an established local brand with whom we work closely and who has been an indispensable support since the very beginning" adds Mr. Olivier Pastor, Chief Executive Officer of Unoria Cooperative.

In addition to having access to the most common hardware products, the citizens of Amqui and the surrounding area will benefit, among other things, from superior quality products at competitive prices, a highly personalized service and promotions that reflect their image. It should be noted that the BMR hardware store in Amqui, which covers two floors, has a flooring and plumbing department, as well as specialized departments for contractors and a new agricultural department.

The inauguration took place in the presence of Mr. Hugo Girard, BMR ambassador, many dignitaries of the Matapedia region, representatives of BMR Group, members of Unoria Cooperative, as well as loyal customers and contractors, and of course the team of employees of the hardware store.

The festivities continued over the weekend!
