Having moved to Saint-François-de-Beauce during spring 1881, P.-F. Renault established a small grocery store on Principale Street. This store became, in the early 1900s, the most important general store in Beauce.
From 1906 to 1908, P.-F. Renault was also mayor of Beauceville, president of the rural phone company (compagnie du Téléphone Rural) and of the Michel Montreuil Foundry in Beauceville. He lived in the house now located at 702 Renault Blvd., a boulevard named after him.
