A Clarksville stalwart will be vacating the community.
The LaCrosse Lumber store in Clarksville will be closing its doors on Friday, May 5.
“With the closing of Holcim Cement, and other economical concerns, it has become difficult to cover the cost of keeping the store viable,” LaCrosse Lumber President Kevin Keely said.
“There is a need for equipment to be replaced, as well as the cost of keeping the store repaired after floods that the corporation has to consider. The board and management took a look at three to four years down the road and decided we couldn’t justify spending the money needed to keep the Clarksville location open.”
The store has been open since 1890.
