November 5, 2018 GMT

Lowe’s is closing a home improvement store in Orange among 20 in the United States and more than 30 in Canada, with the company citing poor profits at those locations.

The Orange Lowe’s at 48 Boston Post Road is one of 17 locations in Connecticut, including stores in Danbury, Norwalk, New Haven, Milford, Derby, Newington and Torrington.

Lowe’s plans to complete the closures by February, and stated it will offer employees the chance to take similar jobs at nearby locations.
