Mead Buys Nebraska Chain
(May 16, 2017) The 109-year-old Kildare Lumber, Paxton, Ne., has sold four of its five yards to Mead Lumber Co., Columbus, Ne.
Mead now operates 43 locations in seven central states. It purchased Kildare’s units in North Platte, McCook, Ogallala and Cozad, Ne. The Cozad store will be closed and merged into the local Mead Lumber.
For now, Kildare retains its original location in Paxton, which Mead said was too small to acquire.
