Castle announces new member in Northern Ontario

Castle announced today that a new retail location will be opening in Moosonee, Ontario.

The Mushkegowuk Development Corporation (MDC), owned by multiple First Nations members of the Mushkegowuk Council in Northern Ontario are the proud new owners of MDC Supply GP operating as Great North Builders. This new Castle location, which was once part of the community for over 35 years, is coming back with enhanced vigor under new management and with an expanded product assortment to meet the increased consumer demand for certain products.

Although the business was a long-standing fixture in the community, MDC is looking to build on the legacy that founder Jack Hood left behind when he retired and closed the business approximately one year ago.

Albalina Metatawabin is very optimistic about the new direction and closing the product gaps in their community. “When we purchased the business, we knew we wanted to grow our brand and take it to new levels. We had the choice to go in any direction but chose Castle not only for the 35-year history in Moosonee, but because of the outstanding experience and recommendations from the previous owner. We look forward to being part of the Castle group and a strong partner to the communities within the region.” Albalina Metatawabin, General Manager, MDC

The store is currently undergoing an expansive renovation and will begin to offer products and services to local customers once the reno is completed in late November. A public grand opening celebration is planned for February of the new year.

“The unique experience of being part of a buying group where You Are The Brand is echoed throughout Castle’s membership. We are pleased to see the legacy of Great North Builders live on and welcome MDC to the Castle family.” Ken Jenkins, President
