84 Lumber grows in Long Island

A growing footprint in the Northeast is just part of the expansion story for the pro dealer

In 2016, 84 Lumber experienced growth in excess of 20%, with revenue topping $2.86 billion and the opening of several new stores.

Maintaining that momentum in 2017, 84 Lumber will continue to open new stores – across the county – with a grand opening in Riverhead, New York, first on the list.

The 36,000 square foot facility will serve both residential and commercial customers in need of building materials. It will offer a variety of specialty departments including a 6,500 square foot showroom featuring an 84 Lumber Kitchen & Bath Design Studio with an Andersen window display, a custom millwork shop, and a reclaimed-wood display that will act as inspiration for customers looking to bring their ideas to life.

“We’re glad to be back in the Riverhead community once again,” said Frank Cicero, 84 Lumber’s chief operating officer. “As we identified new opportunities for the company this year, we felt returning to Riverhead to help service the East End with our capabilities and high-end showroom, was an easy business decision.”

84 Lumber will hold a grand opening celebration for its Riverhead store, located at 1751 West Main Street, beginning Thursday, April 6.  A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on Thursday with the Kitchen Cousins in attendance. Festivities will continue through Saturday, April 8 and the store will be offering custom promotions available at this location only.

This new store is just part of the company’s aggressive expansion strategy for 2017. Upcoming grand openings include Holbrook (South Boston); San Antonio; Tampa South; and Durham, N.C., among others.

With more than 250 stores in the United States, 84 Lumber operates 24 locations in New York.
