After 97 years of business, DuBell Lumber Co., Medford, N.J., abruptly closed all operations on Feb. 9.

DuBell had operated stores in Medford, Cherry Hill, Pleasantville and Winslow, N.J.; a kitchen and bath showroom and K&B distribution center in Vineland, N.J.; and a truss plant in Millville, N.J.

The closure put an end to 157 jobs.

Just two years ago, DuBell was granted an $18-million tax break by the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, after promising a sizable expansion—a promise that will go unfulfilled.
