In its heyday, did workers at the Lumberteria stand behind acrylic sneeze-guards, wearing capacious aprons, waiting to dole out big spoonfuls of nails and staples onto the customer's tray? Did customers stroll past displays of hardware, sliding their trays along the metal railing, idly chatting to the workers about Elmer's versus carpenter's glue, about the freshness of the pine, about the quality of the plywood?
The Lumberteria building (currently for sale) is located in Paducah, Kentucky.
