Builders officially closes doors


TAYLOR COUNTY—That’s a wrap folks! After helping the community with their building needs for over seven decades, Builder’s Service and Supply has officially closed their doors.

In 1945, Builders Service and Supply, located on Rt. 310, opened its doors to the community under the ownership of three brothers Carl, Glen and Russell Harman.

The company remained with the family, and brothers Don and Kent Harman kept the tradition alive by running the company just like their father and uncle did.

Throughout the years, the company has helped the citizens of the Taylor County with numerous projects for their homes from windows to flooring, the store had it all.

A few weeks ago, the brothers announced that they would be closing the doors for good and held a liquidation sale.

Customers from near and far ventured to the store to find some deals and bid farewell to the brothers and employees they have come to know.

On Saturday, the store might have been almost empty of merchandise, but was packed full of customers, as they combed through the remaining merchandise looking for a deal on the last day of business.

In addition to offering discounted prices to customers throughout the last couple of weeks, the brothers also had more than $2,000 in prizes that were awarded at the end of the celebration.

Just for stopping in, individuals received one ticket, and for every $10 spent, they received another chance to win some great prizes.

On Saturday, the winners of a 55-inch Vizio 4K HDR Smart TV, a barbeque grill, a Shop and Save gift certificate and a gift certificate for Jerry’s Restaurant were announced.

Don Harman shared that they had over 40,000 tickets in the bucket, and with the help from a little assistant, they pulled the winning tickets out.

Tom Workman won the Jerry’s gift certificate and Josh Staley won the Shop and Save gift certificate.

Tom Henderson will be cooking up some food on his new barbeque grill, and the winner of the grand prize, a 55-inch television, was Scott Elsey.

After announcing the winners, the brothers thanked everyone in attendance for their continued support.

“We want to thank everyone for coming out today as we close our doors for the last time,” K. Harman expressed.

The brothers expressed that they would like to thank all of the employees from throughout the years for their service, as well as the community for helping to make the business a success.

From the staff at the Mountain Statesman, congratulations on the success of your business and helping the citizens of Taylor County with all of their building needs. We hope you both enjoy your retirement!
