Castle Announces New Ontario Location

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

Castle announced today that a new member has joined the group in North Western Ontario.

Rainy River Hardware is the newest independent retailer taking their future success into their own hands by joining the Castle group. Rainy River is situated southeast of Lake of the Woods and strategically located on the Rainy River, which forms part of the Ontario-Minnesota segment of the Canada–US border.

The full-service hardware retailer was originally established in 1981 and taken over almost 20 years ago by current owner Millie Lindal. Together with her sons Cory and Lance, the family has developed an outstanding reputation for quality and service in their community by supplying a full spectrum of hardware merchandise to the local market.

“When our former buying group changed management, they were no longer supporting the independent retailer and we needed to find a new hardware solution. We weighed the pros and cons of staying independent or partnering with another banner and found that with Castle, there was no need to choose. Castle offered the best of both worlds and had a proven hardware solution already in place.”

- Millie Lindal, Rainy River Hardware, Owner

Rainy River Hardware is excited for their re-branding as Castle and looking forward to their Grand Opening in early January when they will introduce Castle Building Centres to the community, and their valued customers.

“Rainy River Hardware is yet another great example of successful independent entrepreneurs who recognize that Castle is the future of the Independent. With Castle, our members do not compromise their independence and have the support of a group that has their success at the top of their agenda. We welcome Rainy River Hardware to the Castle family.”

- Ken Jenkins, Castle President
