The company says 20 to close next year


Home improvement giant Lowe has announced that it intends to stop wearing paint strippers containing two chemicals that blame for dozens of fatalities.

Lowe will close 51 underperforming stores in North America, announced the company Monday.

The movement – which includes closure of 20 stores in the United States and 31 stores in Canada – is part of a strategic reassessment where the company said it plans to focus "on its most profitable stores and improve overall health in the retail portfolio." [19659008] "Although decisions that affect our employees are never easy, store locations are a necessary step in our strategic reassessment as we focus on building a stronger business." Marvin R. Ellison, Lowe's president and CEO, said in a statement.

The company said it plans to close these stores by February 1, 2019. In order to complete this process, Lowes will "complete retail closure for most of the affected sites."

Lowe has made major changes in the past year . After 13-year CEO Robert Niblock retired in March, the company took on Ellison, the former J.C. Penney CEO. Since the takeover, Ellison has made several reforms, for example, to ban certain paint removers and plans to close all of the Orchard Supply Hardware stores.

According to a February Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Lowe operates over 2000 stores in North America. 19659008] Here are the stores closed in the United States:
