About Us



The Sutherland Lumber Company®
is a privately-owned, family run organization founded 97 years ago by Robert R. Sutherland.

Based in Kansas City, Missouri, Sutherlands® is one of the largest privately-owned home improvement center chains in the United States. We currently operate 54 home centers spread across 14 states. Our stores range in size from small lumberyards to large 140,000+ square foot warehouse stores. The combined buying power of Sutherlands is passed directly to our customers. We simply sell for less! Each of our stores stock a large variety of building materials especially selected for the region. Lumber is our business... not a sideline!

Sutherlands® also specializes in complete building packages, including storage sheds, garages, post frame buildings and entire houses. Sutherland's staff of knowledgeable experts can help plan any project, large or small.
