Serving Bay Area Building Professionals

Economy Lumber Company has been providing quality building materials and unmatched customer service to the Bay Area’s building professionals since 1935. Back then the San Francisco Bay Bridge was under construction. A year later when it opened to traffic there was suddenly a broader market and new challenges in a connected bay. The business changed. Fast forward and we have another new Bay Bridge and another generation running Economy Lumber. Yet many of the challenges are similar. Can we keep learning? Can we adjust to the times? Can we innovate? We’re very proud of where we’ve been, but we know what matters most is where we’re going.

Company President, John Bacon, Jr. and General Manager, Brian Ettlin, rowed on the crew team at Cal together. They still work side-by-side and it’s still about teamwork and connections made and kept. It’s about working a longer day if it means finding the right solution for a customer. It’s about treating homeowner and contractor equally; it’s about respect. It’s about focus and never forgetting you are why we are here and making what’s important to you as important to us.

We Service the Bay Area

Our stores serve both sides of the bay. Economy Lumber Company sits on seven acres on High Street just off 880 in Oakland. Easy to get to, plenty of room to park, easy to load and get back at it. Economy Lumber Piedmont is at 40th and Broadway, near downtown Oakland and proximate to Berkeley. Across the Bay Bridge in South San Francisco is our partner South City Lumber & Supply Company. Ten miles farther down the peninsula is San Mateo Lumber. Twenty-six miles brings you back to the Economy Lumber Company. That’s our circle and we know the Bay Area. We grew up with it. Call us, text us, or better still, come meet us.
