The Goulais River Country Store Under New Ownership

The Goulais River Country Store in the Northern town of Goulais River, Ontario has long been the go-to retail centre in the local community. This Castle location opened its doors over a decade ago and as the store transitions to new ownership, Castle is pleased announce that the tradition will continue.

New owner and entrepreneur, Kenneth Peter Van Daele, along with his daughter Kendralyn are excited to continue serving the local market. The full-service LBM and country store, which has earned a reputation of excellence in community, is part of a large retail centre offering a variety of products and services.

“When we made the decision to purchase the business, we knew that partnering with Castle was the right choice, given the success of the previous owners. We are thrilled to continue the tradition and grow the business to it’s fullest potential. We know that Castle will provide us with the additional support we need to succeed along the way.” Kenneth Peter Van Daele, Owner

The new management team is wasting no time and have already begun plans for a complete renovation and new build for the Castle store so they can expand the footprint and product offering.

“The Goulais River Country Store is a great example of the impact and genuine connection that Castle retailers have to their communities. Castle welcomes Kenneth and Kendralyn to the Castle family and look forward to their continued success.” Ken Jenkins, President & CEO
