Southern California lumberyard to close

Hoyt Lumber, located in Upland, Calif., is closing on June 2, according to an article in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin. The San Bernardino County lumberyard has been open since 1996, when the owners purchased Rugg Lumber, which operated across the street for 67 years, and relocated the operation.

Hoyt opened a second location at in Rancho Cucamonga in 1979, which will remain open.

Co-owner Peggy Nelson said a slowdown in construction that has dragged on for several years forced the store’s closure.
