The Anatomy of a "Lumberyard"

When I tell people who I work for - they get this kinda funny look on their face and say "So you sell wood?" I just want to yell " Well, yeah, we do sell wood. But we also sell so many other things too! Come in and you'll see!"

I really had no idea that the Lumber and Building Materials Industry was so gigantic. I thought Mid-Cape Home Centers was just this little local, yokel kinda place where you know, they sold wood. Who knew wood was traded as a commodity? Who knew there were all these cool new things you could do with your kitchen design. Who knew about the battles that take place amongst competition.... I certainly didn't. My dads a lawyer and handy as a sloth. (love ya dad!) [More]
