Lumber Company Confirms Kmart Purchase

Posted by wlpo on June 19, 2013

Its official, RP Lumber has bought the old Kmart property in Ottawa.

RP Lumber V.P. of Corporate Development Jason Plummer says they closed on the property last week.  He didn’t release details of the purchase.

Plummer says they’ve been looking at Ottawa for awhile now and says the town represents a “good trade area” and “great community”.  He says RP Lumber has a history of buying old box stores in other towns.

Plummer says they will likely use at least some of the existing building although he admits a little “TLC is needed”.  The purchase doesn’t include the nearby strip mall with a tattoo shop and alcohol store.

Plummer thinks you’ll see some activity for the new RP Lumber store within a few months.
