Mid-City was our project, and our finished product was a business suitable to serve the communities where we all live and work. Our lumber company has been around for quite some time, and we’re excited to be around for quite a bit more.

Although a lot has changed since our store’s humble beginnings, there are a few things that stay pretty much the same. We still believe in providing the best quality products at fair prices.

And we still believe that people – our customers, your customers, and the team here at Mid-City Lumber – are what really matters.
