Regional chain Mead Lumber Co. has decided to close its Ashland, Neb., location on July 7, according to an article in the Journal-Star.

The 102-year-old lumberyard was not able to generate enough volume to make the business viable, spokeswoman Kate Mead told the newspaper. She added that local home builders were often bringing in building supplies from outside the area.
