A Rona home centre is expected to open at Columbia Square in New Westminster on Oct. 24.
The Rona at Columbia Square is a satellite store, which a company press release said is "a convenient neighbourhood store where customers benefit from expert advice and a basic selection of hardware products."
Rona's satellite stores connect with the closest Rona big box or proximity store - in this case the Rona Home and Garden Grandview in Vancouver - for access to the entire Rona product selection, the release said.
The new generation of satellite stores is based on Rona's ongoing analysis of consumer expectations and behaviours and insight from operating various sizes of stores across its network, according to the company.
The New Westminster space is 7,900 square feet.
The Rona store in Burnaby (7260 Edmond St.) will not be impacted by the New West Rona and will remain open.
