Lowe's Canada will open in Edmonton

A 142,000-sq.-ft. Lowe's store is expected to open Aug. 1, and will be the first Lowe's in Edmonton, according to a report in the Edmonton Journal.

Lowe's ran a help-wanted ad for the store in the newspaper.

The company opened its first western Canadian store last September at the CrossIron Common, near Calgary. Two other Calgary locations are expected to open in the first quarter.
