Lowe’s Closing 51 Stores in North America; Closing Gurnee and Granite City in Illinois

Lowe’s is closing stores at 51 North American locations. Two stores are closing in Illinois — the Gurnee store and the Granite City store. Twenty of the store closings in the United States and 31 stores will be closing in Canada.

The store in Gurnee was began construction in 2007 and opened in early 2008. Suburban Chicago Lowe’s stores will continue to operate in Arlington Heights, Bolingbrook, Carol Stream, Lake in the Hills, Naperville, St. Charles, and Vernon Hills. The Arlington Heights Lowe’s store opened at 990 West Algonquin Road in January 2006.

Lowe’s headquarters is in Mooresville, North Carolina. Most of the underperforming stores are expected to close by the end of January 2019, according to Maureen Wallace, Lowe’s corporate communications & public relations manager. The closures are expected to allow the company to focus on strengthening its footprint of nearly 2,300 stores across North America.

Employees from the shuttered stores will be offered positions at nearby locations when possible.

“While decisions that impact our associates are never easy, the store closures are a necessary step in our strategic reassessment as we focus on building a stronger business. We believe our people are the foundation of our business and essential to our future growth, and we are making every effort to transition impacted associates to nearby Lowe’s stores.”

— Marvin R. Ellison, Lowe’s president and CEO

Lowe’s has partnered with Hilco Merchant Services to help manage the transition in the U.S. Hilco Global is an American financial services holding company that operates over twenty businesses, including Hilco Merchant Service founded in 2000, and specializes in valuation, advisory, monetization, and liquidation.
