RONA renews its partnership with Group CH to continue bringing the hockey game experience to customers
Boucherville, QC – April 20, 2021 – RONA, a banner of Lowe’s Canada, one of Canada’s leading home improvement retailers, is proud to announce that it is renewing its partnership with Groupe CH, Quebec's premier sports and entertainment organization. With this three-year partnership, Lowe’s Canada will continue leveraging some of Groupe CH’s most significant assets, including the beloved Montreal Canadians, the Laval Rocket, and the hockey game experience, to offer customers exclusive opportunities.
The long history of collaboration between Lowe’s Canada’s family of banners and Groupe CH started more than 25 years ago with in-store and in-game Reno-Depot initiatives. Over the years, the companies have shared a commitment toward supporting local communities while providing them with the shopping and cultural experiences they want. To continue delivering on this commitment within the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic, a heightened level of creativity and collaboration will be key.
"Bringing to life the passion we share with our customers for hockey and the Montreal Canadians is a unique challenge right now,” said Catherine Laporte, Vice-President, Marketing. “Given our history of success with Groupe CH, I am confident that our teams will continue to make this happen together. We are already coming up with safe and innovative ways to launch attractive opportunities in our stores and online, starting with an exciting VIP contest this month.”
“Groupe CH partners with companies that have the capacity to create experiences that our fans can get excited about,” said France Margaret Bélanger, Executive Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer at Montreal Canadiens. “We’ve partnered with Lowe’s Canada’s banners for over two decades because they’ve done a phenomenal job of creating innovative brand initiatives that bring that game-time excitement to their customers.”
