Goulais River Country Store Under New Ownership

The Goulais River Country Store in the northern town of Goulais River, ON, has been acquired by Kenneth Peter Van Daele. The Castle Building Centres Group store opened its doors over a decade ago and Van Daele, along with his daughter Kendralyn, plan to continue serving the local market as a member of the buying group. “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,” says Van Daele. The management team has already begun plans for a complete renovation and new build for the Castle store so they can expand the footprint and product offering.
