Sherwin-Williams unveils vision for Quebec expansion

January 03, 2018

Powerhouse paint company Sherwin-Williams is injecting colour into the Quebec market, with plans to open several retail stores across the province.
A household name in quality paints, Sherwin-Williams is one of the largest producers of paint in the world and its products are sold at wholesale branches, home centres, independent retailers, mass merchandisers, and through a network of more than 4,2000 company-operated paint stores around the globe. The Fortune 500 company generates US$15 billion in annual sales.
Think Retail is thrilled to work with this heritage brand, which operates more than 200 stores in communities across Canada—48 in British Columbia, 27 in Alberta, seven in Saskatchewan, nine in Manitoba, 87 in Ontario, 35 in Quebec, four in New Brunswick, two in Newfoundland, six in Nova Scotia and one in PEI.
With a Canadian annual growth rate of about 10%, Sherwin-Williams’ particular vision for Quebec involves opening two to three stores in 2018 and five to six in 2019. Ideal storefronts are 2,800 to 4,000 sq. ft. along high streets and in open-air centres. Target markets include:
