Castle Grows Again in Atlantic Canada

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

Castle continues to build momentum in the Maritimes and announced yet another new member location in the province of New Brunswick.

Located in Sussex, NB, Moffett’s Hardware is a local business in the community for an astounding 94 years. First started in 1922 by Sterling Moffett in the town of Sussex, the family business has been handed down from generation to generation. In the mid 40’s, Dave Moffett, son of Sterling joined the business and in the early 70’s he passed the business down to his own son, Don Moffett. Don has worked tirelessly to honour the family legacy and create a highly successful operation and community landmark.

“Moffett's Hardware is rich in community history and experience and fits the Castle member profile perfectly. Whether a start-up or long-time successful family run business; more and more Independents are turning to the buying group that allows them stability, growth, profit potential and maintain their independence. That buying group is Castle.”Ken Jenkins, President, Castle Building Centres Group

Moffett’s specializes in hardware, paint and home décor and is the premier hardware and housewares source in the community. They have been a SICO paint dealer for over 20 years and local anglers and hunters often stop in to choose from their extensive selection of sporting goods. Their extensive knowledge, selection and design savvy approach has landed Moffett's Hardware in the pages of Canadian Living Magazine, the Maritimes publication Saltscapes Magazine, the Telegraph Journal Newspaper as well as TV spots on CTV Atlantic News.

“We are an old fashioned hardware store at heart and customer service is always our number one priority. We are excited to be part of Castle and have the advantage of group buying power while still maintaining our independence and local business.” Don Moffett, Owner, Moffett’s Hardware.

Sterling, Dave, and Don Moffett were honoured over the years with the Hardware Industry’s prestigious Gold Hammer Award. The award is given to retailers who have reached an incredible 50 years of service. The Moffett’s may possibly be, the only three generation family to receive the Gold Hammer award in Canada. They proudly display the three Gold Hammers in store for all to see.

Castle would like to welcome Moffett’s Hardware to the Castle Building Centres family.
