Clark Lumber and True Value Hardware is up and providing for their community, despite a tragedy several months. Even without a full facility, they are stocked with lumber, pellets, keys and more! Anything special ordered can be ready in just a couple days.
On July 31 of this year, Clark Lumber was destroyed in a massive fire. The rebuild process has been complicated and slow, but they are determined to keep going. Over the course of their history in Tualatin, they have endured a constantly changing economy, a flood, and multiple generations of leadership. After 50 years, it is going to take a lot more than a fire to knock them down.
The city of Tualatin has been supportive and compliant. Despite their help, there are several outside factors working against Clark Lumber. This includes a lawsuit from a separate party which has caused much delay in moving forward. It has even slowed the cleanup process.
Aside from the struggles, Clark Lumber can still be found in the parking lot of their same location, prepared to serve. A makeshift store has been created in a construction job trailer. There, the familiar faces of lifetime employees are anxious to greet customers and welcome friends, new or old. Inside, they have basic necessities like batteries, gloves, and tape measures. They can even make keys! Anything not in the trailer can be special ordered and ready in a couple of days. Orders can be placed within the office or over the phone. Deliveries are made daily, all over the area. Let Clark Lumber be the source of your next project.
It is the perfect time of year for finishing any indoor projects that have been neglected, picking up a new hobby, or helping out a neighbor with their fixer-uppers. Any purchase, large or small, is more than just a transaction. It provides support for a Tualatin staple, income for dedicated employees, and a little hope in a very dark situation. Every penny is appreciated.
Clark Lumber and True Value is open Monday through Friday, 7 am to 4 pm.Their address is 8460 SW Nyberg St, Tualatin, OR 97062 and they can be contacted at 503-692- 0200
