Company History

99 Years of Quality Service in Kerrisdale


Back in 1921, when Kerrisdale Lumber started in business, horse and wagon brought them much of their merchandise. Other goods came by rail car delivered to one of three sidings on the West Boulevard. In those days you could buy a thousand board measure for the costly price of $10.00. Sidewalks were made of wood and were cleared of snow by a one-horse plough.


In 1948, Tremayne Perry joined the Company. Bert's son started out as a yard man piling lumber and driving truck, eventually becoming President. 

A third generation (Mark Perry) joined the Kerrisdale Lumber team in 1974, and following in his father’s footsteps, became and is the current acting President. A fourth generation of the family now works at Kerrisdale Lumber, representing the families of each of Tremayne’s three children.


The business has evolved from a neighbourhood hardware store to a diverse company with contractor supply, hardware, home décor, outdoor living and BBQ divisions. Our focus remains the same, providing extraordinary customer service to communities that support us while improving the spaces they live in.


Thanks to your continued support and loyalty over the years, we have been growing and expanding our business.
