RHINEBECK – Sandy Williams, owner of Williams Lumber & Home Centers has announced that its Hyde Park store will be permanently closing on Saturday, April 4, at 5:00 PM. Williams announced the temporary closing of their Red Hook store last week.
Williams did not provide a reason for the closing of the Hyde Park store but indicated that the Red Hook location was closing in order to consolidate staff and resources at their other locations to assist with COVID-19 efforts.
“Williams Lumber & Home Centers has made the difficult decision to close to close its Hyde Park location,” said Sandy Williams. The Williams family has been in the lumber and home improvement business since 1946 when Stan Williams bought Gibson Lumber in Rhinebeck and becoming Williams Lumber. In 1963 they opened a second location in Salt Point, followed by the opening of their flagship location on Route 9 in Rhinebeck in 1968.
In 1985 Williams was designated as the “Ace Hardware Store of the Future” and their expansion throughout the Hudson Valley continued.
Currently, the Williams family operates locations in Rhinebeck, Hudson, Hopewell Junction, Tannersville, Pleasant Valley, and High Falls. No announcement has been made regarding the re-opening of the Red Hook location.
