Can you believe that your neighborhood home center store has been family-owned for 125 years? That is almost unheard of in the corporate world, but it is the story behind Lampert Lumber. Our local Eagle River branch is just one of 33 stores throughout 5 states, proudly embracing the “Shop Local” concept since the 1960s.
A Partner to Home Builders
Lampert Lumber is a valuable partner for home builders, allowing construction professionals to shop locally without sacrificing quality or good prices. With everything from lumber and roofing to insulation and windows, this is a one-stop shop for contractors. The best part is that builders have access to dedicated contractor sales professionals, like Lorin Johnson, to ensure a good experience. The Eagle River store has a team of 9, with 2 individuals dedicated to serving contractors.
Lorin, who is also a Phelps Chamber Board Director, enjoys working closely with contractors to fulfill their construction supply needs, and has done so with pride for over 22 years. He explains that the Lampert Lumber website is a great resource for both builders and home owners, with wide product selection, construction tips, and information about the LamPerks points system.
A Resource for Home Owners
The website features the Lampert Lumber Blog, a great place for homeowners considering tackling a home remodeling or maintenance project to find tips. And the store is a helpful resource for the homeowner to find both the home products they are looking for and the guidance they may need. With a well-trained friendly staff, Lampert’s can help you figure out exactly what supplies you need and make recommendations for specific brands or types best-suited to the project.
“It is helping people that make this so enjoyable,” Lorin says. This time of year is perfect for starting to plan for your spring home projects, such as decks and docks, and the Lampert Lumber team is eager to help. Lampert’s gets a lot of inquiries for composite deck materials and Tommy Docks, because Wisconsites are always eager to get those docks in as soon as the ice is out. Lorin also explains that the home center carries a good assortment of tools for the do-it-yourselfers and contractors.
And you don’t have to live in Vilas County to take advantage of the wonderful home supplies at Lampert. The store offers delivery service around the area, and into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, at an affordable price.
