Castle welcomes a new location in Ottawa

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

North Gower, Ontario is the home of The Old Co-op, Castle’s newest member location in the Central Region. The new Castle Building Centres is located just outside of Ottawa in a historical building, serving the local community for almost 130 years.

“Our business model is stronger than ever and Castle’s message is being heard. We continue to attract new members from all regions of Canada and are pleased to welcome The Old Co-op to our group.” Ken Jenkins, President, Castle Building Centres Group

Since the store’s establishment in 1846, The Old Co-op has been a landmark in the local community and the go-to location for building supplies, hardware, outdoor gear and farming supplies. The business was taken over by new management five years ago and owner Pat Lambert, who also operates a local construction company, has significantly grown the home improvement category. Over the years they have expanded into many new product categories, including a small custom shed design/build service. The Old Co-op is active in their community and pride themselves on customer service and the team is looking forward to serving the community as the newest Castle Building Centres in town.

Owner Operator, Pat Lambert is excited about becoming part of the Castle group and knows it will open up many new opportunities in the building materials category of his business. “We believe that joining the Castle team of members will help us to experience continued growth and provide our clients with more competitive pricing and the highest level of personalized service and expert advice.”

Castle Building Centres Group would like to welcome The Old Co-op to the family.
