Paradise Lumber expansion nears

The owner of Paradise Lumber on Centerline Road hopes to have a 7,000-square foot building complete by March to expand his business.  Brian Rourke said a gardening section will be added, and plumbing, electrical, paint, roofing and doors inventories will be enlarged, he told the St. John Source. While Rourke said prices at the store are usually less than if customers bought items in Florida or St. Thomas, that could change because of the renovation of the Red Hook cargo docks.  Prices will go up if the V.I. Port Authority does limit the size of shipping containers to 20 feet, rather than the current 40 feet.  This will increase shipping costs, which will be passed on in higher prices, he told the Source.
