PORTAGE -

A northwest Indiana store is one of more than 50 in the U.S. and Canada North Carolina-based Lowe's Companies Inc. (NYSE: LOW) says are set to close by the end of January. The home improvement retailer says the location in Portage is among the underperforming stores it is cutting to strengthen the more than 2,300 remaining stores in its portfolio.

The company will hold closing sales at each store and it says most U.S. associates affected by the closings will have opportunities to transition to other locations. Lowe's says most of the stores that will be shuttered are located within 10 miles of another Lowe’s store.

Chief Executive Officer Marvin Ellison says "while decisions that impact our associates are never easy, the store closures are a necessary step in our strategic reassessment as we focus on building a stronger business. We believe our people are the foundation of our business and essential to our future growth, and we are making every effort to transition impacted associates to nearby Lowe's stores."

Many can be chalked up to carelessness, insensitivity and lack of relevance or connection. Most organizations could benefit from a communications audit.
