Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited announced the construction of a 1.5 million square foot distribution centre in Coteau du Lac, Quebec, beginning in the Fall of 2006 to support Canadian Tire Retail’s continued growth and expansion in Eastern Canada.

“Between 2005 and 2009, we will undertake 300 projects to continue the renewal of our store network, including 100 new or replacement stores that will significantly expand our retail square footage and increase retail sales,” says Patrick Sinnott, senior vice-president, Supply Chain. “This distribution centre is essential to our growth. It will be the largest among Canadian Tire’s distribution centres and with state-of-the-art technology and material handling systems, we will be able to efficiently supply our stores in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes with the products they need to meet customer needs.”

Construction of the facility is expected to take about 27 months to complete with a planned opening in early 2009. When fully operational, the distribution centre will employ 600 full-time and 300 part-time employees and will process over 50 million cubic feet of product for approximately 300 Canadian Tire stores in Quebec, Ontario and the Maritimes.

“We are delighted to bring our new distribution centre to the Coteau du Lac region,” added Sinnott. Coteau-du-Lac is located in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region of Quebec, about 45 minutes west of Montreal.
