When thinking about undertaking an at home or on the job do it yourself project most of us automatically think of big box stores that are heavily advertised. But are they really the best choice?

Let’s take a look.

When you are a large nationally known retail chain, you have to gear your business to maximize profits on a national basis. That gives you little or no flexibility to cater to local markets. In fact, here in South Florida, when our outdoor season starts, the big box stores here are usually geared for Winter!

Also, when it comes to lumber, climate plays an important role in what local builders and codes demand. The big box stores cannot completely reconfigure a small number of stores for local markets because they would lose the economies of scale they rely on.

  • Shell Lumber and Hardware maintains the largest selection of Lumber in South Florida.
  • The only store to fully stock 4 Grades of Pressure Treated Lumber.
  • The largest selection of Exotics and Hardwoods sourced from renewable and sustainable forests.
  • The largest collection of mouldings and casings found anywhere!
  • A fully stocked hardware store featuring the largest selection of stainless steel fasteners.
  • Shell is also an authorized dealer for many top brands you can't find in the big box stores. We have Benjamin Moore paint, Stihl Power Tools, Titan Water Heaters, Festool Power Tools, and many more top quality items you won't find elswhere.

Couple this with pricing that is competitive with the big box stores, and the reason to visit Shell Lumber and Hardware is very clear.
