MAPLE RIDGE—North Dundas Building Supplies officially opened their doors for business on Sat., Sept. 8, and welcomed new clients, family and friends as well as the general public. There was a barbecue, there were inflatables for the kids, sales and draws for people to get in on.

Members of their new staff were on hand to meet and greet potential customers and clients. The owners, Stacy Duguay and David Nyentap, were all smiles with the attendance they received and they made people feel comfortable.

The company is mainly run as an agricultural construction business with their main focus on the dairy industry. Nyentap has been in the construction business for over 20 years so his experience is definitely an asset.

Duguay’s background is in marketing and she will be mainly focusing on the administration aspects of the business. Duguay has been in administration for over 10 years and the pair had been running their lumber yard independently for the last year and a half and decided to expand into the retail side of the business, so they joined the Castle brand.

The pair had been working since May to get the store together and bringing in materials and merchandise.

Duguay thanked family and friends, “we could not thank our families and friends enough for their help with projects at the store, watching our kids and dealing with our late hours and theirs.” She continued, “the staff has been so great getting the store set up and taking on tasks to ensure everything was completed on time. It was so heart warming to see so many people come out and check out the store at our open house. We are excited to serve the community with their building supply needs!”
