Our experience in the building materials industry dates back to 1919, in Lockwood, Missouri.
Meek’s has earned the reputation of being a provider of expert services as well as quality building
and home improvement merchandise.
In 1951 Charles C. Meek Jr. ventured to Northern California and opened the first Meek’s yard on
the West Coast, in Redding, California.
Expansion continued in both the West and Midwest in the early 1950’s. With the addition of two
more stores, one in Chico and the second in Redding, Meek’s grew quickly to become the market
leaders. For multiple generations, families have counted on Meek’s to be there when they built or
remodeled their homes. With an emphasis on community support, the basic philosophy of the
company, “service to our customers, opportunity to our employees,” has never changed since the
first yard opened many years ago.
