Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.
Castle announced today that current shareholder Woodworks of Renfrew has acquired a second location in Burnstown, Ontario.
Burnstown Building Supplies will be the newest Castle Building Centres in the Ottawa Valley. It was only one year ago that Bruce Gannon and Laurie Wichers-Schreur purchased their current Castle location, Woodworks of Renfrew, from a retiring Castle shareholder. When the neighbouring location had to close its doors, they considered the opportunity and thought it was the right time to expand their business. The region has seen extensive residential growth in the past few years, and the new Castle location is situated right in the heart of growth region.
“Our goal is to create a “destination” store for our customers. We are driven and committed, and along with our knowledgeable staff, we will bring our customers a whole new experience when they come to this location.”
- Laurie Wichers-Schreur, Co-Owner
Burnstown Building Supplies is located approximately 15 kilometres from the Renfrew store and will be providing the same great lumber, hardware and building supply inventory, with the addition of some seasonal products.
“Castle is very happy and proud of the growth that we have seen Woodworks of Renfrew experience over the last year. We know that they will bring the same passion and commitment to their new location in Burnstown!”
- Doug Keeling, Business Development Manager, Central Region
The team at Burnstown Building Supplies is excited for the store opening in March after a large-scale renovation and planning a Grand Opening celebration to the community in early June.
“Castle is committed to the success of our members and we continue to see organic growth within our membership. Our business model allows our members to be more profitable by providing the tools and support they need for continued success and growth. Congratulations to Bruce and Laurie on their expansion.”
- Ken Jenkins, Castle President
Castle is pleased to welcome Burnstown Building Supplies to the family.
