Cleveland Lumber to Host Energy Savings Fair

When you can't find that part you need or that wood you want, Cleveland Lumber will have it.  So why not go there first?

Always Shop Locally!

One of the reasons that our neighborhood housing is so desirable is that it is surrounded by great retail. But unless we support it, it might not be there in the future.  So before you run to the big boxes, think small - and support our local restaurants, entertainment spots, specialty shops and service establishments.
