Montreal, Quebec— Groupe Turcotte and Home Hardware Stores Limited recently announced the acquisition of Quebec-based home improvement retailer Patrick Morin Inc. The deal will see Group Turcotte and Home Hardware Stores Limited purchase 21 stores and one distribution center in the province of Québec.

Groupe Turcotte is owned by Louis Turcotte, an independent and experienced Home Hardware dealer-owner. Turcotte has been in the Quebec home improvement industry for over 30 years.

“We are honored to have worked with Patrick Morin, a company with a strong reputation and deep roots in communities across Quebec,” said Louis Turcotte, dealer-owner, Groupe Turcotte. “As we carry on the legacy of a truly Québécois company, Patrick Morin will continue to operate with a head office in the province and in partnership with Home Hardware, an independently owned and operated Canadian company. It is our priority to provide excellent service and products to the communities in which we are located.”

Founded in 1960, Patrick Morin is recognized as a leader in the construction and renovation industry in Quebec, providing quality products and services to consumers and contractors. The company has 1,700 employees.

“We recognize that Quebec is a unique market, and we believe that partnering with such a strong, made-in-Quebec brand will continue to give us a competitive edge as we work with Groupe Turcotte and the Patrick Morin team to strengthen our merchandise programs,” said Kevin Macnab, president and CEO of Home Hardware Stores Limited. “This dealer-focused transaction strengthens the program for all Home Dealers and Patrick Morin by leveraging Home’s national scale with Patrick Morin’s position and expertise in Quebec.”

Patrick Morin stores will continue to operate under the existing Patrick Morin banner and branding.

“This partnership demonstrates our commitment to growth in the province of Quebec and the strength of our independent dealer-owned and operated model,” said Christine Hand, chairman of the board, Home Hardware Stores Limited. “We look forward to working with Louis Turcotte, an experienced entrepreneur, Patrick Morin, a well-respected retailer, and our strong base of Quebec dealer-owners to support our mutual growth and success.”
