R.P. Lumber is set to acquire Mount Carroll Home Center, an independently owned retailer of hardware, lumber, and building materials in Mount Carroll, Ill. Terms of the deal were not publicly disclosed.

The deal, set to close May 17, marks R.P. Lumber’s fourth acquisition in 2024. The acquired branch represents the first Carroll County location for R.P. Lumber.

“We’ve been friendly competitors and industry peers with R.P. Lumber for as long as we can remember,” Fred Pasche, owner of Mount Carroll Home Center, said. “When we finally got the chance to meet them in person, we were immediately reassured we’d found the trusted successor we’d been seeking.”

The store will become the 84th R.P. Lumber location across six states.

“The lumberyard has been serving professional builders and DIY homeowners across Carroll County and the surrounding area since 1984,” Robert Plummer, president and CEO of R.P. Lumber, said. “The locals in Mount Carroll have come to trust Fred and Deb for their home improvement solutions and we intend to honor their legacy by expanding the store’s product selection, service territory, and employee product training.”

Edwardsville, Ill.-based R.P. Lumber operates locations in Illinois, Missouri, Wyoming, Iowa, Wisconsin, and South Dakota.
