Invitation to the Financial Community to Attend RONA's 2008 Spring Tradeshow

BOUCHERVILLE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 25, 2007) - RONA (TSX:RON) is pleased to invite the financial community to its 2008 Spring Tradeshow on November 9, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, to meet members of RONA's senior management team and tour the exhibits. The event will be held at the Palais des congres de Montreal at 159 Saint-Antoine West in Montreal.

The Spring Tradeshow is an annual event where RONA presents the next spring's lines of new products and services to the affiliate dealers and corporate managers of its 673 stores. The theme of this 62nd annual tradeshow is Building Canadian Potential.


RONA management has decided to change the format and date of its annual meeting with investors. Investor Day will no longer be associated with the Spring Tradeshow and will instead be held in early 2008.

The new format will include a visit to one of our facilities and presentations by guest speakers about recent trends in the Canadian renovation/construction industry. The senior management team will also unveil the RONA 2008-2011 Plan. More information about Investor Day will be communicated shortly.

Please confirm your attendance at the Spring Tradeshow no later than October 31 by contacting Elaine Pelletier at or 514-599-5900, extension. 8215.
