Mendo Mill announces grand re-opening of Clearlake store

CLEARLAKE – Mendo Mill and Lumber will hold a “Grand Re-opening” of its newly remodeled and expanded Clearlake store Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13.

The high-profile event will include a “20 percent off” sale on everything in the store and yard, many free prizes, vendor demonstrations and hot dogs and sodas for just $1. The 20 percent off sale also will apply at the other Mendo Mill stores in Ukiah, Fort Bragg and Willits.

The new facility will have 25,000 square feet of enclosed retail area, a large lumber yard under cover and state-of-the-art customer conveniences.

Mike Mayfield, the president and chief executive officer of Mendo Mill, called the project a major step forward for his home improvement company and a significant addition to Clearlake and Lake County.

“We have achieved our goal of designing and building a “right size” home improvement store that blends product selection and customer service in ways that the big box chain stores cannot match”, Mayfield said. “It was a vision advanced by my father, Joe, many years ago while he was still actively managing the company. We worked closely together on the concept and it has been my privilege to guide it to completion. We are particularly gratified by the extent to which the project has utilized the recycling of materials and incorporated the extensive installation of energy-efficient components”, he added.

“From the beginning we worked closely with the community officials and civic leaders to build a store that will serve the people of Lake County effectively and add to the commercial profile of the city and county for many years to come,” Mayfield continued. “On behalf of my family and the Mendo Mill staff, I want to express appreciation for the co-operation we have received from local officials and for the patience of our customers during this huge renovation and expansion.”

Mayfield also praised the Mendo Mill staff for their work during the renovation. “Our department heads, cashiers and yard employees did a superb job of accommodating our customers while the construction was underway,” Mayfield said.

He cited the leadership of Jay Reed, merchandise manager, and Gail Strong, vice president, both residents of Lake County, saying, “It has been a great team effort by the entire Mendo Mill organization and I am very proud of their work.”

Steve Bricker, who joined Mendo Mill Aug. 1, will manage the new store. Bricker, who has extensive experience in management and retail in Lake and Mendocino counties, said he is “thrilled to have the opportunity to manage a premier home improvement store in one of the fastest growing areas of the state.”

Mendo Mill and Lumber was founded in 1944 and has expanded to include stores in Ukiah, Fort Bragg and Willits as well as Clearlake. It is one of the top 50 Ace Hardware dealers and one of the top 25 Ace Paint dealers in America.

In addition to the Clearlake project, Mendo Mill has recently completed major improvements, expansions and renovations at its stores in Ukiah, Willits and Fort Bragg.
