New York City, Lowe's Cos. Canada LLC, a division of home-improvement chain Lowe's Cos., said Monday it expanded outside the United States with three Canadian stores.

The expansion is part of a previously announced plan to open up to 100 locations in Canada. The stores are located in South Brampton, Brantford and Hamilton, Canada.

Lowe's said it will open another three Canadian sites in East Gwillimbury, North Brampton and Toronto on Feb. 1 and one store in Maple soon after.
