Groundbreaking is expected to start early this year, with completion projected by the end of the year. 

Current plans are to relocate the retail side of its existing Tifton location once the new store is completed, and use the old site for warehousing and distribution. 

The new location is being designed to better serve the diverse needs of professional contractors, remodelers and consumers. In addition to traditional offerings, the store will introduce new categories such as pet feed, hunting supplies, and guns and ammo. It will also boast an enhanced paint center and deeper assortment of hardware items.

The lumberyard promises to facilitate the swift, efficient pick-up of lumber and building materials, ensuring a seamless experience for customers and streamlined process for delivering orders to customers.

Owner Jay Short noted, “We have been in business for 83 years and have seen a lot of success and challenges along the way. This new location will be a mix of our existing business model with a touch of the same offerings you would normally find at a Farm Supply or Hunting Outfitter location. It will reflect what we have learned from our past and our focus for the future.”
