In Mill Valley, a century-old lumber company struggles to survive

Thursday, June 14, 2012

Mill Valley Lumber opened in 1892 and has survived two world wars and the Great Depression. But the Great Recession may be its undoing. General manager and co-owner (with his father and brother) Dan Cerri tells the Marin IJ’s Paul Liberatore the venerable lumber yard is steadily losing money and they’re looking for a buyer: “We could decide to say, ‘Let’s just stop,’ then the doors close and it’s gone. Or we try to give ourselves until the end of the year to find a buyer. Nothing’s set in stone.”
