When Gwynne Hampton Slack opened his doors for business in 1947, he realized that the only way he could compete with the well established local lumber yards was to not only to offer the best selection but also the service. Over 60 years later, the competitive landscape has undergone a significant transformation; Large do-it-yourself centers have replaced the traditional "mom and pop" hardware stores and large foreign conglomerates dominate the lumber yards. However, what still remains the same today at G. H. Slack and Son is the commitment to selection, service and customer satisfaction. We specialize in bringing your dreams to reality.
As a material supplier serving both the construction trade as well as retail clientele, our success hinges on the service we provide our customers. It also relies on our manufacturers, which is why we only deal with distinguished vendors whose products epitomize the finest in design, functionality, innovation, and craftsmanship.
