Castle announces a new member location in Newfoundland

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

Atlantic Canada seems to be the hot spot this month as Castle announces another new member location, this time in Newfoundland.

G & C Hardware in La Scie, Newfoundland is the newest independent dealer to redefine themselves as Castle Building Centres. The Baie Verte Peninsula coastal town of La Scie is where this family owned and operated business began in 2010. It was founded by locals Glen and Cathy Newbury who have been catering to the local community and surrounding area for many years. Glen and Cathy have built a fine reputation in La Scie as a full-service lumber, building materials and hardware retailer in the area.

Formerly with a competing buying group, the husband and wife entrepreneurs felt that becoming a Castle member would enhance their programs and improve the product selection so they could offer more competitive pricing to their valued customers.

"We are excited to be a part of the Castle Group and looking forward to better buying programs that will help us grow our business with more product assortment and better pricing that we can pass on to our customers.” Glen & Cathy Newbury

As part of their move to Castle, G & C Hardware will be closing their existing location and moving their business to a larger footprint at a newly acquired store just minutes away. A Grand Opening is planned in the coming months.

“Many independents who are realizing that in order to remain competitive, they need to make the transition to a truly National buying group. Castle is the only National buying group that can offer its members the best national buying programs and unlimited profit potential, while allowing them to maintain their true independence.” Ken Jenkins, President

Castle welcomes G & C to their nationwide family.
