Vancouver, Wa – Tum-A-Lum Lumber recently celebrated the grand opening of its newly remodeled Hood River, Oregon location. The retail showroom was increased by 50% and the yard and warehouse areas have been reconfigured for more efficient operations. The exterior and interior color and signage packages have been updated.
The store now features a full color-match paint center and an expanded design showroom with windows, doors, cabinets, and countertops along with dedicated sales personnel for these products. In addition to the new displays, new lines—including Traeger, Pratt & Lambert Paint, Willamette Graystone pavers, MasterBrand Schrock & Omega cabinets and Yeti Coolers—have been added to the mix of products offered to customers. In addition to these new lines, the plumbing, electrical, hardware and tool departments have been expanded.
The three-day Grand Opening Celebration included a contractor VIP night, a burrito breakfast for contractors and their employees, and a community wide event for the public. “The celebration was a great way to get the community involved and show our appreciation and gratitude for their support of our Hood River location over the years. It was wonderful seeing hundreds of our friends, family members and especially the kids enjoying the event as much as we did,” explained David Dittmer, CEO of Tum-A-Lum Lumber.
From face painting, balloon art, corn hole toss and pinewood derby cars for the kids, to a nail driving and a screw driving contest, complimentary hot dogs and ice cream for everyone, and of course great specials, it was a memorable event all around.
“We could not have done this huge six-month project, while staying open everyday, without the assistance of a great crew, loyal customers and vendors, along with the support from many local businesses,” added Dittmer.
Tum-A-Lum Lumber, a member of the LBM Journal Century Club, was founded in 1906 by J.M. Crawford and is a fourth generation family owned and operated building material supply company.
