TORONTO, ON - May 26, 2016 — As part of its ongoing growth in Canada, Lowe's has announced hiring plans for its new location set to open in Prince George in late summer 2016. The store will become the company's first location in Prince George under the Lowe's banner, and is expected to create 130 permanent positions in addition to 5-10 seasonal roles.

Lowe's will be holding a Career Fair from June 2-4, 2016 inside the Pine Centre Mall (adjacent to Sears, across from "Homework") at 3055 Massey Drive to support mass hiring for its new Prince George location. The store will be hiring for all positions including full time, part time and seasonal roles. Available positions range from Department Managers and Sales Specialists to Night Crew, Cashiers, Customer Service Associates, Department Associates and Receiving Clerks. There will even be a position for a Garden Centre Pro.

Interested candidates are invited to attend the Lowe's Career Fair to learn more about available employment opportunities and apply in person. The store's management team will be onsite ready to accept applications and conduct on-the-spot interviews. In some instances (when possible), offers of employment will be made onsite to successful applicants. Those unable to apply in person can go to www.lowes.ca/careers at any time to submit their application.

"We are excited to join the Prince George community and have a lot of great employment opportunities available," said Fred Pagotto, Market Director of B.C. Stores, Lowe's Canada. "The new Lowe's will create many new jobs in Prince George and we are committed to filling as many positions as possible locally.
