Leon’s Adds Showrooms
Leon's is adding showrooms in Kelowna, BC, and Calgary, AB. The Kelowna location opened in August while the Calgary showroom will open its doors this month. These showrooms are modelled after its 'smart store' concept introduced last year in Coquitlam, BC, and Coldbrook, NS. Reinventing the 'big-box' style store that they are known for, it utilizes technology as a way to showcase the vast collection of products and services in a smaller retail footprint. The showrooms also feature wider aisles for browsing, eTags for instant price updates, 12-foot interactive video walls, and iPads for mobile customer transactions. Since the onset of COVID-19, the retailer has seen evolving consumer trends such as the need for additional food storage solutions with refrigerators and freezers.
