Badger Building Supply now open

January 30, 2013
Meet the crew at the new Badger Building Center; (l-r) Jesse Tanner, Spencer Campbell, Gene Denning, Rich Carvalho and Kevin Hebert.
There's a new building supply store in town; after months of work, Badger Building Center, 34 Swift Lane off Highway 95 at the top of the North Hill, opened its doors to customers on Monday.

It's not named in honor of the Bonners Ferry Badgers, but after owner Lee Badger, Post Falls, and it's the fourth building supply store he's opened in the region, joining outlets in Post Falls, Sandpoint and Kalispell, Montana.

"Lee's wanted to come to Bonners Ferry for 20 years," said employee Rich Carvalho, "and here we are!"

Construction on the new Badger Building Center, by Andrews Construction, Bonners Ferry, began in September.

"Tim and Andy were outstanding," Carvalho said. "They did a great job."

Badger Building Center offers a full array of retail building materials and supplies, from construction grade dimensional lumber, oak and birch plywood and oak lumber to cement, blocks, tools, caulking, hardware and more, and caters to everyone from professional builders to the do-it-yourselfer.

The crew all have extensive backgrounds in construction, and the experience to help make those do-it-yourself projects a snap.

"We specialize on the do-it yourselfer but cater to everyone," Carvalho said. "If it's not here, we can get it for you."

Badger Building Center is open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. To find out more, call (208) 267-0002.
