Carter Lumber closes

The faltering economy has claimed another local victim. The Carter Lumber outlet (located at the intersection of 127 & Sebring-Warner Road) is now closed. The property is listed for sale. The Carter buildings sit on 19.248 acres in Greenville Township. The lot and buildings are appraised by the county at $603,900.

Carter is the second lumber chain to leave Greenville in a year, as 84 Lumber (Children's Home-Bradford Road) closed in the spring of 2008. At the time, 84 Lumber indicated its closure was "due to low or no housing growth in [the market]."

A mix of the ecoonomy, the opening of Lowe's, and Darke Countians' preference for local vendors probably all combined to force Carter and 84 Lumber out of business.
