Celebrating 40 years of Business Excellence
your Guarantee of Product Value
We’ve Earned Your Trust!
“Celebrating our 40th anniversary, TimberTown Building Centre Ltd. has been in business as long as our manufacturer’s warranties. That is your guarantee of product value. We are locally owned, operated, and understand the Alberta market, providing you with quality products that are suited to our environment. TimberTown employees are proud to offer you quality products that they would be happy to install in their own homes.”
“We are one of the few retail companies that remains closed on Sundays and statutory holidays…”
TimberTown was founded on March 11, 1981
We operate 3 warehouse style stores in Calgary and one each in Edmonton and Canmore. Our distribution centre is located in Calgary. We have gainfully employed people in Alberta since 1981, and thanks to focused and skilled employees, we are one of the few retail companies that remains closed on Sundays and statutory holidays.
Our customer base includes home builders, industrial shops, general contractors, renovators and retail walk-ins. Each of our stores employs a carpenter with a fully equipped Cut Shop room for pre-hanging doors and other mill work.
TimberTown purchases many items direct from the manufacturer in order to pass the savings on to our customers. We represent the finest hardwood flooring mills in Canada, the U.S.A. and around the world. All stores are authorized dealers of a national buying group called TIM-BR Mart .
Our most important strength is the diverse range of talents our employees possess. TimberTown’s employees generally work smarter and are paid much higher than the industry average.
We also have a state of the art Computer System to help us efficiently run our stores and control every aspect of the business. These efficiencies allow us to remain competitive and provide a price break to our customers.
We have developed an Operating Manual that covers every aspect of our business within the TimberTown system. Once again this creates efficiency and helps with loss prevention which allows us to stay in an increasingly competitive industry.
