Simonson Lumber, the six-unit dealer based in St. Cloud, Minn., has acquired Matthew Hall Lumber Company.

Matthew Hall Lumber, based in North St. Cloud, is a 129-year-old dealer.

In a letter addressed to the Central Minnesota Community, and posted on Matthew Halls Facebook page, the pro dealer gave thanks to its employees and customers.

“As we close one chapter of our lives and open a new one, we want to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication to our business. Central Minnesota is what made this company great,” the Hall family said.

“Over the last 129 years we have been a staple of St. Cloud, one of the greatest. That will always live on in each and every person that has stepped foot through our doors. Even though the name will change the memories will always be here.”

Despite already having two locations in the St. Cloud area, Simonson said it plans to keep all three locations open. Simonson was established in 1913 with their first St. Cloud location in 1927.

Terms of the deal, which closed on Jan. 31, were not disclosed.
