Lowe’s stores in Maine escape 51 closures in US, Canada

Maine’s 11 Lowe’s stores, including those in Presque Isle and the Bangor area, will remain open as the home improvement retail chain said Monday it will shut 20 underperforming U.S. stores and another 31 in Canada.

Two New England stores, one in Connecticut and one in Massachusetts, will close, according to a list on the company’s website.

Lowe’s announced that the closures were part of its ongoing strategic realignment.

In an announcement Monday the retailer said most associates in the closing stories will be offered a chance to take a similar job at a nearby Lowe’s. Most affected U.S. stores are located within 10 miles of another Lowe’s, the company said.
