About

With the intention of building a new home, P.C. Barton stacked a load of lumber he had purchased behind his grocery store. As customers began to purchase the lumber he had intended to use for himself, the item was added as a sideline to the grocery store. Barton eventually sold the grocery store and incorporated his new business in 1902. It was called Barton Lumber & Brick. The company grew and in 1927 Barton acquired all the stock in the company, turning the business over to his son, Eugene C. Barton, the following year. The younger Barton was 20 when his father called him home from college to help in the lumber business. Eugene Barton learned his father’s philosophy on business. He later said, “I’ve spent my life insisting that my employees follow the same rule – treat your customers courteously, give him quality merchandise and stand behind everything you sell. Buy quality, buy satisfaction has always been our motto. It is better not to sell a customer at all, than to sell him once.”
