Reno lumberyard to close
B&C Builders, a 38-year-old lumberyard in Sparks, Nev., is closing on March 31, according to an article in the Reno Gazette Journal.
The owners said that a lack of construction has forced them to shutter their doors. The company has about $250,000 to $275,000 worth of inventory, which it may dispose of through a liquidation sale or an auctioneer.
Both owners wanted to get out of the business before they had to declare bankruptcy.
"We were both born and raised in this town," Randy Blackwell told the newspaper. "We can't start filing bankruptcy and all that kind of stuff and be able to walk around this town. We're connected to too many people, way too many."
