Who We Are
For over one hundred years, City Lumber Company has supplied the Jackson and West Tennessee construction markets with quality building materials.
City Lumber started in 1903 to act as a retail and wholesale outlet for longleaf yellow pine produced by Mississippi and Louisiana sawmills. As time progressed and construction materials evolved, City Lumber Company has added additional products and services to complement its lumber offerings.
Today we offer lumber, plywood and other wood panels, doors and windows, all types of residential and commercial millwork and trim, roofing, gypsum products, engineered wood products, fiber cement products, along with the fasteners and other hardware products that West Tennessee builders need and use every day.
With multiple delivery platforms, City Lumber Company has the capability to handle all your material needs. From lumber & roofing to millwork and trim, our experienced delivery team will set up your project for success.
Terms and Conditions
Each time we complete a job with City Lumber I plan to write a letter thanking you for the responsiveness, quality of work, and attention you give to our projects. After we completed the dorms and Commons Building at Union University, I decided it was time to formally express my appreciation. You Company’s effort makes our jobs run smoothly, maintain superior quality, and complete the project on time. This is what owners are looking for therefore both our reputations are enhanced as we each try to develop a positive reputation throughout the West Tenn. Area. It has been, is, and I’m sure will continue to be a real pleasure working with you and City Lumber for years to come.. The success that we have had over the years is due to our association with you. City Lumber has been a true asset for us.
As a customer for over 35 years, we have always felt comfortable dealing with City Lumber Company for all of our building needs. As the lumber industry has changed, CLC has always kept up with changes. Competing against the Lowes and Home Depots of the world had to be tough, but they have always been able to retain our business. No matter how exotic of materials I am looking for, CLC has always come through for us. Customer service and loyal employees are very hard to find these days in general, but that is especially true when it comes to supply houses. The level of customer service at City Lumber is why we keep coming back after 35 years.
Having worked with City Lumber Company since I joined our family’s construction company 16 years ago, I trust their competence and admire their expertise in the industry. Our City Lumber salesman acts as an extension of our management team; not only do they provide what we need in a timely manner; they have the experience to anticipate our needs. This forward thinking reduces our crews’ downtime and increases our efficiency. Reduced downtime and increased efficiency are just two of the ways City Lumber has proven to be a supplier on which we can rely.
Since 1985 my company has enjoyed a professional relationship with City Lumber Company. Their personnel have always displayed the upmost in professionalism and courtesy and have tried to save me money by using their purchasing power and influence in the marketplace. Their customer service goes way beyond the norm, i.e. they are always available for consultation with clients and my sub-contractors , which in turn makes the clients more willing to do continual business with me. I always welcome the opportunity of working with this fine company and highly recommend them. There is obviously a reason the Taylor family has been in business for well over 100 years!
J W Hellums Construction has been doing business since 1976 and has been in Jackson since 2001. When we moved here, we quickly looked for a building supplier that not only could give us excellent service, but would offer the highest quality products for our clients and projects. We found the Weather-shield line of windows (that we were accustomed to using) at City Lumber and stopped in to open our account. For the last 10 years, we have been receiving the same excellent service that we got the day we placed our first order with City Lumber. Whether they compile a take-off estimate for us or go with us for a site meeting with a future client, we get the same time saving service from people who 'know and do business' the way we do. Thanks City Lumber 'employees' for making Jackson a great place to have our business. We are glad we chose City Lumber Company to be a big part of servicing our customers.
Ron Petty Construction Company has been in business for 15 years. We are commercial and residential framing subcontractors as well as general contractors. We have done business with City Lumber through other contractors as well as projects that we have been the general on during those years and are proud to be a part of the City Lumber family. It is very easy to do business with them and they are quick to respond if or when there is an issue due to CLC being a family owned company. The company has what is missing in today's environment, a sincere desire for a pleased customer. They do what they say and stand behind what they do. I do business with CLC because that is one less area that I have to worry about. I can focus my attention on the job at hand. Thanks guys and keep it up!
