Port-Daniel, September 25, 2020 – BMR Group is pleased to announce the arrival of a brand new dealer to its large Quebec family: the Port-Daniel Renovation Centre. The owner of the past 12 years, Richard Briand, has decided to opt for our green banner after having operated under the ACE brand for almost five years.

“For a long time, I saw BMR as a group that pays attention to the quality of the products and services it offers to the public, visions that we share. I was looking for a partner that was attentive to my needs as a regional retailer, was familiar with my business reality and would be able to provide me with personalized support. I found all that at BMR. Also, the fact that BMR is a 100% Quebec group played a role in my decision. In addition to being a Quebec-based company, recognized and established since 1967, BMR shares my values, and I’m confident that the group will be able to help me reach my goals,” says the owner.

“We are thrilled to add the Port-Daniel Renovation Centre to our vast network and to contribute to this very promising movement of change. We are sure that it will appeal to citizens of Port-Daniel and its surroundings. We really look forward to working alongside Richard and his entire team in order to help them discover BMR’s many advantages,” says Pierre Nolet, Senior Director, Business Development, of BMR Group.

The sign change will be completed in one or two months, and the interior work will give the store a contemporary new look, while allowing it to sport the BMR colours. With a sales area of 2,800 sq. ft. and a lumber yard of approximately 15,000 sq. ft., this business offers a wide range of products, making it a go-to destination for citizens in the region.

The Port-Daniel Renovation Centre will operate under the BMR banner and offer its customers—a large regional population—a selection of nearly 6,000 essential household products and supplies, including hardware items, pet supplies, seasonal products and a broad range of construction materials.


Groupe BMR is a subsidiary of Sollio Cooperative Group, which includes more than 275 renovation centres and hardware stores in Quebec, Ontario and the Maritime provinces. Retail sales for Groupe BMR and its members are estimated at more than $1.5 billion per year and some 8,000 people work within the network. Groupe BMR is the leading Quebec player in the hardware industry and operates under the BMR, Agrizone and Potvin & Bouchard banners.
