Lyons TIMBER MART opened its doors in 1913, and like Sault Ste. Marie, much has changed in a hundred years.

By 1960, Richard Beaumont became sole owner, determined to build on what James Lyons had started in 1913. Nearly a half-century after it was founded, customers continued to come to Lyons TIMBER MART for reliable products, friendly faces and first-class services.

Richard’s son David Beaumont learned the business from a young age before heading off to university. He returned to the Sault, first to work at Lyons in 1981, and then followed his father’s footsteps by purchasing the business in 1992.

When David Beaumont started working with his Dad, Lyons had 40 employees.

Today there are over 135 employees, several who have been with the company for well over 25 years.

James Lyons would be proud of what has become of the business he started back in 1913. In addition to the original location on Wellington Street West, a second store was opened in the east end, on Black Road, and now a third location, Island TIMBER MART has been added in Hilton Beach on St. Joseph’s Island.

Reaching the 100 year milestone is a rare achievement for any business. David and Ruth Beaumont are confident the future of Lyons and Island will continue to be successful by staying current with market trends while holding onto the core values of customer service and business integrity.
