Pratt-Dudley Builders Supply Closing its Doors



The long-standing Pratt-Dudley Builders Supply Co. is closing up shop in the coming days. Owner Mark Pratt said the decision is fully his own, and that it's a happy decision.

"This was a planned thing and is merely a retirement," Pratt said. "I'm 64, and this is a happy thing, not a sad thing."

  1. The closure of a long-standing independent business is a big deal.
    I don’t buy a lot of lumber, but every time I went there the customer service was excellent. I learned a lot about what I was buying. The staff would explain why to buy this rather than that. Just walking around in their warehouse is pretty special. I will miss it. A big box store will never replace it.

  2. Sir, You definitely deserve great retirement ! Enjoy, and thank you for the multiple times that your company was able to find out of the ordinary wood products (CEDAR) that many box stores and other lumber entities couldn’t or didn’t want to find, THANK YOU and Your Great Business will be sorely missed !!
