Montana’s Massa Picks Up Pair of Idaho Lumberyards

Allied Builders Supply, Challis, Id., and Lemhi Lumber, Salmon, Id., have been purchased by Jeff and Deanna Wolfe, the owners of Massa Home Center, Hamilton, Mt.

Allied Builders Supply, Challis, Id., and Lemhi Lumber, Salmon, Id., have been purchased by Jeff and Deanna Wolfe, the owners of Massa Home Center, Hamilton, Mt.

They do not plan to change the stores’ names, since both are “well established;” Lemhi was founded in 1939, Allied in 1949. Few personnel changes are planned, although some Massa sales employees will relocate to Idaho to work at the new locations.

The most significant change Wolfe expects is lower prices, since Allied and Lemhi will benefit from Massa’s bulk buying power.

Allied manager Brenda Sakellaridis intends to gradually transition from management to front counter sales, while Dawn Aldous will remain acting manager of Lemhi, a post she moved into in late 2020.
