Important Information & Upcoming Events

The Lumber Barn in Bradford, NH recently completed an exterior and interior remodeling project. It started in January with a change of their primary hardware vendor and lasted through the winter. The end result is a brighter, better-stocked hardware store with a functional layout, new lighting, new shelving, and a better product selection. 
According to Lumber Barn General Manager, Tony Esposito, "We're very excited about the total reset of our store and the ability to offer 67,000 product SKU's in stock to our customers. We've really worked hard to earn the business of residents and contractors in the Kearsarge area and they'll be amazed at what we have to offer."
Lumber Barn will be celebrating their Grand Reopening on Friday May 13 from 8am to 4pm. Highlights of the celebration will include free food and beverages, interactive displays from over a dozen vendors, and door prizes that include Red Sox tickets.
