In Rhode Island, yard closes suddenly

Wickford Lumber closed its doors "abruptly," according to local media reports in North Kingston, R.I.

Monday was the True Value-affiliate store's last day of business, and it closed without notice, according to the NorthEast Independent newspaper.

The Wickford Lumber website describes the business as "the place to come when you are looking for first-quality products, reasonable pricing and plenty of service."
