Wolseley Canada, Burlington, Ontario, Canada, celebrated the grand opening of its first one-stop shop facility in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland, in October. It is the first location to combine all five Wolseley business units - residential plumbing, commercial mechanical, HVAC/R, waterworks and industrial - under one roof.
More than 250 vendors and customers attended the grand opening and 35-plus vendors displayed their products. A drawing was held with a grand prize of a weekend for two in Montreal, including hotel accommodations and tickets to a Canadiens’ hockey game.
Mount Pearl has a strong industrial center that includes a thriving wholesale sector, according to Dave Rowe, Mount Pearl brand manager. “For our customer, this means one stop and one purchase order, creating huge time and cost savings,” he said.
