After a review of its stores and their local markets, 84 Lumber closed 10 locations throughout the United States on March 7. They are Farmingdale, N.J.; Karns, Tenn.; Ft. Pierce, Deland, and Brooksville, Fla.; Winder, Ga.; Anderson, S.C.; Springfield, Mo.; Tulsa, Okla.; and South Haven, Miss.
“These 10 stores have consistently underperformed for the past three years, and while we do see some positive movement in the housing and construction markets on an overall national basis, these markets continue to lag severely with no sign of a significant rebound that fits our business model,” Jeff Nobers, VP marketing and public relations, told Home Channel News in an e-mail. “We have multiple stores in these regions -- with the exception of Tulsa -- and we can handle the business from these closed stores from other locations.”
All of the properties will be offered for sale, Nobers said.
