Our History

Shoemaker Lumber at Ocean City, NJ

Shoemaker Lumber Company is a family-owned and operated yard serving south Jersey since 1902.

We are very proud to have been a part of this community for more than 100 years. Originally, Shoemaker Lumber Company delivered lumber, coal and other supplies with a horse-drawn cart. There was a small office on the first floor of a house and a railroad siding to deliver lumber and supplies to the yard.

The man who wrote your order probably loaded and delivered it. Things have changed for sure and we now employ over 20 people on staff. We can deliver your lumber with boom truck service. We have a hardware store that caters to contractors and handymen, but offers a great selection of supplies for anyone needing to repair their home.

We have showrooms that feature kitchens, vanities, doors and windows so that you can choose wisely. We sell products, but we pride ourselves on service. Stop in to our yard or store to meet our staff and let them help you with your next project. It is always our pleasure to serve you.
