CAN (PE): VanKampen's Greenhouses sold to The Cassidy Group

After 60 years of business in Charlottetown, VanKampen's Greenhouses — an institution on Prince Edward Island — has been sold to The Cassidy Group.

The business changed hands officially on Dec. 1, said Mike Cassidy.

"We were the perfect match. The Cassidy Group and the VanKampens — it came together very well. But it was a 10-month process," Cassidy said.

Until now, the business was owned and operated by brothers Charlie and Billy VanKampen, the sons of the founder.

Cassidy said the brothers wanted to retire but had no one in the family to take it over.

Cassidy also said his early years spent on farms on the Island served as motivation to take the business over.
