84 Lumber announced expansion plans in California that include new stores in Stockton, Lancaster, and Riverside as well as a new truss plant and framing yard in Bakersfield. The dealer said the new sites, along with previously established stores in Bakersfield, Clovis, and Beaumont, will bring 84 Lumber’s presence to eight total locations in California.
“The new stores and component plant are an example of 84 Lumber’s dedication and continued commitment to better serve our customers and communities,” 84 Lumber chief operating officer Frank Cicero said in a prepared statement. “I’m excited to watch these stores grow and develop over the next five years. 84 Lumber is committed to California, and we look forward to providing more opportunities for associates in these markets.”
Jorge Espinoza, the division president of 84 Lumber’s western division, said the division “is on a fantastic path of expansion.”
84 Lumber will also expand a component plant in Yuma, Ariz., to service southern California as well as a store planned for Reno, Nev., and an additional store in the Salina/California coastal areas.
Eighty Four, Pa.-based 84 Lumber operates 310 facilities, which include 234 stores, 14 component manufacturing plants, 28 engineered wood product centers, and 34 door shops, in 33 states.
