Schell Family Celebrates Century Of Service

Schell Lumber Home Building Centre is celebrating 100 years of service in Stouffville, ON. The local Home Hardware store has been in the Schell family since founded in 1922, with ownership being passed down through four generations. Founded by Wes Schell as the Stouffville Planing Mill, it is currently owned by fourth-generation dealer-owner Kyle Schell and his uncle, Steve Schell. Steve Schell has been involved with the store for 49 years. The store has more than doubled in size since its inception and now offers 13,000 square feet of retail space and an expanded yard. The family plans to expand its second store in Sutton, ON, opened in 2001, in the next few years.
