Expect to see more deals like Lowes/Rona if the loonie stays around 70.

Lowes buying Rona is just another reason to support your local Mom and Pop or Co-op building center. Really. Get the equity.

With the purchase of Rona and the concerns of poor service with Lowes, just remember the great service at all @home_hardware stores! #HH

Lowes buys Rona as more $$$ leave Canada. However Rona needs a product and customer service shake up @mjbickerton https://t.co/Yw8msUXt5t
