Following Purchase by the Jutice Family
March 31, 2010 --Daniels, West Virginia – Businessman Jim Justice today announced that the Justice Family Group, LLC has purchased The Resort at Glade Springs for an undisclosed price. The purchase is the second resort ownership for the Justice Family Group which purchased the world-renowned Greenbrier Resort in May 2009.
“The Resort at Glade Springs is an ideal addition to the amenities and services offered to our clientele at The Greenbrier,” said Jim Justice, chairman and owner of The Greenbrier. “With this acquisition Glade Springs will become an outpost to The Greenbrier and it allows The Greenbrier to be so much closer to all the wonderful West Virginia outdoor adventures, such as rafting, skiing and ATV riding. The sister resort relationship offers both resorts the opportunity to present a broader range of options in price and quality to their many loyal guests and corporate clients.”
The previous owner, EMCO Hospitality, will continue to manage Glade Springs as it has for the past six years and will continue to employ the existing staff.
