REPORT: DuBell Lumber still owes suppliers big money

By HBSDealer Staff - 10/11/2019
A number of building suppliers and distributors have filed an involuntary bankruptcy action against the former DuBell Lumber.

In February, DuBell abruptly closed all of its locations and went out of business. Based in Medford, N.J., DuBell had been in business for 97 years and operated locations in Cherry Hill, Pleasantville and Winslow Township along with a truss plant in Millville and a kitchen and bath showroom and kitchen distribution center in Vineland.

But the business still owes more than $1 million to suppliers.

Mid-State Lumber is owed more than $480,000 while Reeb Millwork is claiming $260,000 and Atlantic Forest Products is seeking $304,000, according to a report by the Courier Post.

In separate litigation, about 160 former employees are preparing a class action lawsuit for financial damages claiming the company did not provide notice or severance pay when it shut down.

Shortly after closing, the former DuBell locations were acquired by Carter Lumber.
