A week after announcing layoffs at its headquarters, 84 Lumber has closed 12 units in nine states, according to an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The industry’s third largest pro dealer will pull out of Redding, Calif. And Manchester, Tenn. due to slow housing starts, and shutter fives stores in metropolitan areas where the company has other locations: Loveland, Ohio; Palatine, Ill.; Granite City, Ill.; Ellicott City, Md.; and Amsterdam, N.Y.
Four other lumberyards – Greensboro, N.C.; Pineville, N.C.; Columbia, S.C.; and Slidell, La. – were described as relocations in areas were bigger stores had been built nearby. A store in Merced, Calif. is being converted into a components plant.
Employees were notified Wednesday, according to the newspaper.
