The company, which operates Lester Building Supply, plans to open its fifth building supply location in Virginia’s  New River Valley this spring. Located in Christiansburg, the new store was formerly a Moore’s Lumber site and is undergoing extensive renovations.

This location will operate under a newly-created New River Valley Building Supply Banner. The Lester Group’s other LBM banners include Lester Building Supply, Jim Carpenter Company, Taylor Brothers, and Building Supply of Manassas.

According to the Lester Group, the location will create 15 new jobs with employment anticipated to increase by approximately 10 jobs in the second year.

“Our employees have gained a reputation for providing customers with the expertise and the right answers,” said Jim O’Brien, co-chairman of the Lester Group.

Additionally, two new buildings will be constructed to ensure the entire inventory is covered and protected, the company said. Overall, the site will include more than 41,000 square feet of warehouse and store buildings spread over five acres.

Last week the Lester Group announced that its board of directors elected Jay Dickens as president and CEO.
