Castle member expands to 10 locations in Newfoundland

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

Castle announced today that member Notre Dame Agencies has purchased their 10th retail location; the former Warr’s Castle in Springdale, Newfoundland.

Warr's began in the early 1900’s as a logging and sawmill operation. Mid-century the business expanded into hardware and building supplies to better serve the people of Springdale. The business grew over the decades into a full-service lumber, building materials and hardware and become the go-to retail location for contractors and consumers alike.

Cluny Sheppard, who already owns and operates nine other Castle locations, recognized this opportunity to purchase the Castle location as an excellent fit for their retail chain with their established customer base and prime location. This strategic initiative of purchasing the existing reputable business is a testament to why Notre Dame Agencies is so successful and has become a dominant player in Newfoundland and Labrador.

“We are pleased to announce that we have purchased the assets of Warr’s Castle Building Centre in Springdale.  This will be our 10th Castle location on the island and we look forward to serving the people of Springdale and surrounding areas.”
Cluny Sheppard, Notre Dame Agencies

Manager Peter Young along with his experienced and dedicated staff, are one of the keys to the longevity of Warr's Castle Building Centre and the team is looking forward to continuing the success as part of Notre Dame Agencies.

“A buying group focused on member success will see continued growth both organically and through new membership. Castle delivers on this promise by delivering a business model that is in line with our member’s goals, encourages freedom, and provides the tools necessary for their success. Congratulations to the Sheppard family on this remarkable milestone.”
Ken Jenkins, Castle President
