Lester Group to Open Building Supply Store In New River Valley

About Us

The Lester Group is a diverse company offering contractor and retail based home centers, rental properties and real estate, and forest products in Virginia, North Carolina, and West Virginia. 

Holdings include four full service building materials stores serving the needs of professional builders, contractors, remodelers and homeowners in four major Virginia markets. The company also has a rigorous residential and commercial real estate portfolio and over 18,000 acres of timberland and a door manufacturing plant.


The Lester Group will open a building supply store in the New River Valley this spring, its fifth store in Virginia. The store, to be named New River Valley Building Supply, is expected to open in April at US Hwy 460 and Roanoke Road in Christiansburg. Lester has begun an extensive renovation of what was a Moore’s Lumber store years ago.

The New River Building Supply will create approximately 15 new jobs to staff the store.  The jobs include manager, sales, contractor coordinator, drivers and yard/warehouse specialists.  Employment is anticipated to increase by approximately 10 in the second year.  “Our employees have gained a reputation for providing customers with the expertise and the right answers,” said Jim O’Brien, CEO.

The store will have a 6,000 square foot showroom to display new construction and remodeling projects.  The renovated store will have new walls, lighting, heating/cooling, siding, paint, displays and a new racking and fixtures.   In addition, two new buildings will be constructed to ensure the entire inventory is covered and protected.  There will be more than 41,000 square feet of warehouse and store buildings spread over five acres.
