It’s that time of year again, a time to kick up your feet and raise a glass of eggnog to a year well done.

Washington’s best contractors and do-it-yourselfers have tackled countless projects this year, and by delivering quality lumber and top-notch service, we’re proud to have played a part in your success. It’s been a big year here at Chinook. We have all kinds of irons in the fire for 2016. Here’s a snapshot of what’s on deck:

You’ll soon find us in two new locations

In 2016, you can look forward to more lumber at two new locations. The North Bend store is moving to a new, larger location to serve you better. Construction is underway and our grand opening is slated for May 2016.

At our seven-acre site in Arlington, you’ll find a new temporary storefront starting February 16, 2016. It will be limited in its inventory while we remodel and prepare to give you the full Chinook experience at our grand opening in April.

Get more specialized advice with Chinook-level service

You expect expert advice from Chinook, and we’re happy to introduce two new experts who can support your project. Jeff Kellam is our door specialist. He can meet you on-site to measure, compare and make suggestions based on the style of your house.

Building a new deck for your home or your customer is about to get easier too. Ted Corey will head up Chinook’s new 3D deck design service. Our 3D renderings will make choosing the size, color and design more accurate and more fun. You’ll be able to take advantage of this new service in the spring, just in time for deck season. Check back soon for more details.

Another big year under our belts

At Chinook, you don’t have to come to us; we’ll come to you. In 2015 we stayed true to that promise. We put more sales representatives on the road to serve you at your job site, and we expanded our fleet of trucks and forklifts to give you faster on-site delivery. We built a new website to offer you a better online experience and added more lumberyard staff to provide faster and more efficient service so you can get back to your jobsite in minimal time. 

We’ve grown a lot this past year but not at the expense of quality. Our business is built on strong relationships with our suppliers and customers, and it’s the reason we’re able to consistently deliver quality lumber to you. We look forward to building on these relationships in 2016.

On behalf of everyone here at Chinook, we thank you for your business, and wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
