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.

Meek's entered another new frontier in 1981 with their expansion into Northwest Arkansas. Growth continued during the 1980s and 1990s with the addition of several new locations in Missouri, Arkansas, and California. Today, the company still remains family-owned under its fourth generation of leadership. An aggressive growth plan has increased the company’s count to more than 40 retail locations. Meek’s is constantly adding new stores and a variety of services, products, and facilities to accommodate professional builders and do-it-yourself consumers alike.
The "Meek's Team" of aggressive, bold professionals, supported by active owner management, has positioned Meek's as one of the leaders in the industry, ranking in the top 30 nationally! Response to the demands of an ever-changing marketplace, new and innovative building centers and personal service to their customers has allowed Meek's to become the market leader in professional building products and services. Meanwhile, the basic philosophy of the company, "service to our customers, opportunity to our employees" has never changed since the first yard opened so many years ago.
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.
