Cameron’s Building Supplies
Lifelong Glace Bay resident Jeep Kennedy is living proof of the value of hard work. Kennedy’s real name is Thomas, but you’d be hard pressed to find anybody who calls him by anything but Jeep. Among the people who know him as Jeep are the many customers he’s come to know as owner of Cameron’s Building Supplies in Glace Bay. Since 1977 Kennedy has orchestrated a number of changes at the building supply store, including the construction of a new, bigger building, as well as joining the Castle buying group, the largest independent buying group in Canada. Both of these major changes were made in the early 1980s. Kennedy has also expanded the inventory in the store, which today includes wood paneling, insulation, roofing material, windows, a full hardware line, and anything else needed by a building contractor or a handyman.
