Carter Lumber Adds Some Stores, Closes Others
November 6, 2013
The Carter Lumber Co., which sells windows and doors from Ply Gem, Andersen, Jeld-Wen, Therma-Tru, Larsen and Silver Line, announced it has consolidated 26 stores as of November 1, 2013, mainly within the Midwest region. Carter expects less than 30 employees to lose their jobs as a result. The consolidation is a reflection of the company's effort to support its recent addition of 10 stores in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Southern regions during the last 18 months, company officials say. In order to support the growth, Carter consolidated smaller market stores, reallocated business to other stores in the company, or pulled out of markets all together.
