La Shop BMR Concept Shuttered

Group BMR has decided to cancel its La Shop BMR store concept and has shuttered its two locations in order to strengthen the efficiency of its network and improve the shopping experience for customers, it said in an open letter to customers. “This initiative will allow us to consolidate our efforts in the other BMR stores in the metropolitan area and to further improve our service offering and better meet your needs,” it said. The urban concept store was launched in 2018 in the Griffintown community in Montreal, QC. It was a smaller format store to supplement a traditional hardware store selection with products and services adapted to the urban market. In 2019, the group opened a second location in Mount Royal, QC.
