1) We believe in local enterprise and keeping profits within our community.
Metro Home Building Centre is a locally owned, family run operation founded in 1969 by Donald A. Smith. While Don still plays an active part at Metro, Don’s son Peter now is President and General Manager of the company. We’re easy to talk with and any time you want you can speak with the owner – Can you do that with our competitors?

2) We endeavour to offer prices and selection equal or better than competitors.
With a staff of around forty, Metro maintains our competitive position through our association with Home Hardware. Home Hardware combines the purchasing power of hundreds of independently owned stores across Canada allowing us to offer prices as good as, or better than our competitors.

3) Stability is important when making one of the largest investments of your life.
Need parts or warranty in future? We’ll still be here.
Pella Windows are widely “viewed to be the best” and Metro is this Nation’s oldest Pella Window dealer. Pella is a worldwide company that has been in operation for over 75 years and for half that time Metro has exclusively represented Pella on the Island. We are now a distributor of Pella products for Atlantic Canada.
JeldWen Windows, with their DF Collection, is another of the World’s Largest window and door manufacturers and for over 20 years we are pleased to have been be one of the Maritimes largest JeldWen dealers.
Velux roof windows and skylites have a worldwide reputation for quality and we are proud to have represented them on P.E.I. for over thirty years.
Some window companies come and go. Some building suppliers are here today and gone tomorrow or change names or affiliations frequently. STABILITY IS IMPORTANT – Who wants to build their home through a company with suppliers who may no longer be in business when it comes time for service or parts?

4) We are proud of our exceptionally low staff turnover rate.
When you come back time and again over the years, you will see the same friendly and knowledgeable staff. Our sales people are familiar with our complete line of building products for residential, farm and commercial construction.

5) Prompt delivery.
It is expensive and frustrating to have people waiting for a delivery that doesn’t appear. When we give you a delivery time, we do our utmost to ensure your order will arrive on schedule – not hours or days later. Drop in and see us. We are very conveniently located at 25 Riverside Drive – Mid way between the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the Hillsborough Bridge on the Charlottetown Arterial Highway.

In 1969 Metro opened its doors at 161 St. Peter’s Rd in the Sherwood Shopping Centre. In the Spring of 1986, Metro expanded and moved to 27 Brackley Point Road. Then in March of 2004, Metro moved to our new, bigger and better location in our own custom built facility at 25 Riverside Drive. In March 2008 we expanded this site with the addition of a 14,000 square foot warehouse adjoining the North side of our property. In the Spring of 2011 Metro expands again with METRO Bath & Lighting located just around the corner at 16 Exhibition Drive.
