LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – Officials of A.D. Moyer Lumber Inc., which operates a store and yard on Armand Hammer Boulevard in the township, said Monday (Jan. 5, 2009) they planned several “low-key celebratory events and specials” to mark 2009 as the company’s 70th anniversary in business.
The firm will give away three $25 gift certificates to local restaurants each weekday during the first 70 weekdays of this year. A total of 210 lucky shoppers through April 9 will receive certificates in thanks for their business. Other promotions include special sales and events later in the year that are yet to be finalized.
A.D. Moyer attributes its success, in part, to its employees. “We have an experienced, well-trained staff which continues to be one of this company’s greatest assets,” said co-owner Scott Moyer. It currently employs more than 80 part- and full-time workers.
Company founder Amandus D. Moyer began supplying used lumber in 1939 from old structures, including Sanatoga’s fabled roller coaster and a coal cracker, that he dismantled. Today, in addition to the Lower Pottsgrove site, A.D. Moyer has stores in Gilbertsville (where it originally opened) and Douglassville. All operated under the third-generation ownership of the Moyer family.
