EIGHTY FOUR, Penn. — 84 Lumber has announced that it will open a 92,000-square-foot space in Richmond, Virginia, this November to keep up with growing demand in the region. The facility, most recently occupied by Cedar Creek, will feature a traditional showroom and lumberyard, as well as a door shop and engineered wood products. When it opens, it will be one of the company’s largest locations.
“We have really outgrown our current presence in Richmond and sought a new location that can better accommodate our operations and customers,” said Maggie Hardy Knox, president of 84 Lumber. “Aside from offering essential materials to local builders and homeowners, the new facility will enable us to provide engineered wood products and other high-quality services. We’re looking forward to the opening in November.”
Located at 510 Bellwood Road in Richmond, the new space will consolidate two current 84 Lumber facilities in the area: a 22,000-square-foot store and lumberyard and a 22,000-square-foot door shop. The company plans to sell the former location—about 2.5 miles away from the new space—after the move. The door shop will be converted into a manufacturing facility for roof trusses, wall panels and other components.
