Ask any long-time Welland resident where they go to shop for premium wood products and they’ll likely point you to Hicks.
Since 1946, Hicks Lumber & Builders’ Supplies has remained the choice for do-it-yourselfers, tradespeople and carpenters alike. Even after the introduction of ‘big box’ stores, customers continued to value the friendly and knowledgeable service found at the Welland store. What’s more, Hicks carried items many other larger stores didn’t.
When the store was offered for sale in 2017, many feared the Hicks name would disappear into the history books and the doors would close for good. But locals Paul Savoia and Harry Powell appreciated the niche market that Hicks carved out for itself. They recognized the small-town approach to service and quality that only Hicks offered. So in the spring of 2018, they purchased the 3 generation family-run business.
Almost immediately, they undertook minor renovations to brighten up the store and improve layout. That, however, is all that will change. The same level of service, expertise and competitive pricing will be offered at Hicks Lumber & Builders’ Supplies.
Hicks Lumber & Builders’ Supplies is a member of Castle – Canada’s premier buying group.
