Downes & Reader Hardwood Team


We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Maine Coast Lumber by Downes & Reader Hardwood!

  • Downes & Reader has been serving New England since 1973 and has locations in Blakeslee, PA, Milford, CT, and our corporate office in Stoughton, MA.
  • We wish to provide an expanded inventory along with enhanced service going into the future.
  • Customers who have an active in house charge account with Maine Coast Lumber will retain the same credit line upon receipt of a completely filled out Downes & Reader credit application. If you wish to increase your credit line from the previous limit, please note that increase on the “amount requested” line. Also note on your application if you are a current Downes & Reader Hardwood customer.
  • COD customers will remain as COD unless a Downes & Reader credit application is filled out. COD customers will need to fill out a Downes & Reader COD application along with a copy of their driver’s license. If you are currently a Downes & Reader Hardwood customer you may skip this part.
  • If applicable, tax exempt forms must be filled out and returned with your application in order to have a tax exempt status.
  • On October 3rd, we will open as Downes & Reader Hardwood at the Maine Coast Lumber location in Westbrook, Maine.
  • If you have any questions in regards to credit and COD applications, feel free to call us at 1-800-788-5568. If you have questions about products and inventory, please continue to call Westbrook, ME direct at 207-856-6015.
  • Our apologies for any confusion in the interim. We are currently in the process of migrating data from both companies together. We also plan on moving the current Westbrook store to a bigger and better location in Gorham, ME with the tentative opening in early 2017.
  • We value your business and look forward to many years working together to strengthen and grow our businesses.


Best Regards

The Downes & Reader Hardwood Team
