During 2010 and 2011, home improvement retailer Rona plans to focus primarily on growing its market share in Ontario and Western Canada while reinforcing its strong position in Quebec.

The retailer expects to grow its share of the Canadian home improvement market from 17% to 20% by the end of 2011.

By 2020 Rona could take the number three slot in the wider North American market, behind Home Depot and Lowe’s, president and chief executive Robert Dutton told investors.
