MONTREAL ⁠— Legault Group, the Quebec-based family business that owns Mondou stores, is proud to announce the acquisition of Ren’s Pets, a pet supply retailer based in Guelph, Ontario. The company acquires 100% of the shares of Ren’s Pets. This is Legault Group’s first acquisition outside of Quebec.

Founded in 1975 in Oakville, Ontario, Ren’s Pets is growing rapidly and now has 35 stores, 31 in Ontario, two in New Brunswick and two in Nova Scotia, as well as a distribution centre in Guelph. In the past few months, the company has opened three stores and plans to open three more by the end of the year. It employs close to 500 people and also has a transactional website for online orders that it ships across the country.

“This transaction is part of Legault Group’s growth plan, which is based on expanding our activities in Canada through acquisitions and partnerships focused on innovation,” said Martin Deschênes, Chief Executive Officer of Legault Group. “It will allow both companies to combine their strengths and accelerate their growth in Canada by opening new stores through an agile and flexible approach.”

“We are proud to join Legault Group and combine our strengths with the Mondou store network in order to pursue our development. We share common values with this respected team in the Canadian industry such as customer service excellence and a commitment to the community and the well-being and health of animals,” added Scott Arsenault, President of Ren’s Pets. “We are confident that this transaction will be beneficial not only to both banners, but also to all Canadian consumers who care about their pets.”
