Did you know that Canac was the first independent hardware and construction materials chain from the Quebec City region? With over 140 years of experience, Canac is the hardware store of choice for many Quebecers. They currently offer over 20,000 products and are a trusted retailer providing a wide selection of merchandise, exceptional customer service and competitive prices.
The Canac business is run as if all associates are family. This management approach, based on mutual respect and strong company values creates a culture of success and commitment.
In December 1981, the family-owned companies of Jos Grenier and Louis Canac-Marquis, merged to form Canac-Marquis Grenier. The business established itself at the forefront of hardware distribution in the Quebec City region with a total of five stores. In 1984, Canac acquired the stores of Baptiste Touchatou in Charlesbourg, Vanier, and Saint-Romuald. In November 1985, Groupe Laberge acquired the total assets of Canac-Marquis Grenier.
In 1989, Groupe Laberge purchased the Centre de bricolage Chez Tôle hardware store, and in 1993, two Matériaux Audet stores (L’Ancienne-Lorette and Henri-Bourassa) joined the chain.
Since the acquisition by Groupe Laberge, several new stores have opened their doors throughout the Quebec City region. From 2001-2007, morer new stores and a state-of-the art distribution center in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures made Canac a key player in the construction and hardware game.
In 2010, the company’s management team decided to update the company’s identity by renaming the chain CANAC. Today, there are 30 Canac stores and the company employs over 4,200 employees. You’ll find Canac stores in cities such as Québec, Sherbrooke, Saguenay, Rimouski, Cowansville and Drummondville.
