Received an email yesterday letting me know that Atlanta Hardwoods in Collierville, TN decided (very quietly) to pull up roots, move the inventory to Clarksville, and close!. Colco is now closed in Memphis now, and as far as I know, there isnt a whole lot to choose from, but that is what I am asking. Where in West Tennessee is a good, reliable, source of lumber. I live 80 east of Memphis, 120 west of Nashville. Thanks and Happy New Year, Rick

I didn’t even know Atlanta Hardwoods was in Memphis. I lived in Memphis from 2004 to 2009 and always went to Colco. The folks there are very helpful. They have an excellent inventory.

It is not local to you, but look up Hogan Hardwoods. They have several locations.

I don’t know how far you are willing to drive but WW Wood Products in Dudley Mo is a pretty good place to buy lumber.

hokieman, AH used to be Craig Lumber in Collierville off Poplar. As mentioned in my original note, Colco is now closed, I think he tried to sell the business with no luck, and I had heard Bil had recently passed away. That was a good store, hate to see it go.Bill and dav, I will look those two up and check it out. Thanks and Happy 2011
