Castle Building Centres Group Ltd. announces another new member location in Atlantic Canada

Castle Building Centres Group Ltd. announces another new member location in Atlantic Canada. Burgeo Castle in Ramea, Newfoundland is the newest Castle Building Centres to join the group. Burgeo Castle opened its doors to the local community as the newest Castle Building Centres location in the picturesque island town of Ramea located southwest of the coast of Newfoundland.

“Castle continues to welcome diverse, independent entrepreneurs looking for a buying group that will offer them a long-term hardware solution, profitability and the freedom to run their business, their way. The decision for Burgeo Castle to join the group during this growth stage of their business is an indication that the Castle message is being heard and that our simple yet highly successful business model is working.”
Ken Jenkins, President

Burgeo Castle is a retail store expansion originally founded back in 1977 by Earl and Mary Walters. Their son Craig has taken over the business which has been an integral part of Ramea/Burgeo local community for many years. As most Newfoundland small businesses do, they began as a general store and over the years has grown and expanded its product offering. As the new Castle in town, Burgeo Castle will now offer customers the convenience of being able to purchase a complete line of hardware and building supplies right on the island. When Craig decided that it was time for Ramea residents to have access to hardware and building materials, he knew he needed to partner with a buying group to be competitive.

“I chose Castle because I knew I could grow this new segment of my market without compromising my existing product assortment. With Castle I could do what was best for my market and stay independent.”
Craig Walters, Owner, Burgeo Castle

Since the move to Castle, Burgeo Castle the recently renovated store has undergone re-branding to the community as Castle Building Centres and a grand opening is planned for later this month.

“Like many Independents today; Burgeo Castle was seeking a buying group that is transparent with no surprises, offers them freedom of choice and cares about member prosperity. Burgeo Castle wasn’t getting what they needed and Castle had the solution."
Bob Delaney; Business Development Manager; Newfoundland
