File Under: Better Business Names
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?

The Lumberteria building (currently for sale) is located in Paducah, Kentucky.
