From Foundation to Finish

About Us

Our experience in the building materials industry dates back to 1919, in Lockwood, Missouri.

Meek’s has earned the reputation of being a provider of expert services as well as quality building

and home improvement merchandise.


In 1951 Charles C. Meek Jr. ventured to Northern California and opened the first Meek’s yard on

the West Coast, in Redding, California.


Expansion continued in both the West and Midwest in the early 1950’s. With the addition of two

more stores, one in Chico and the second in Redding, Meek’s grew quickly to become the market

leaders. For multiple generations, families have counted on Meek’s to be there when they built or

remodeled their homes. With an emphasis on community support, the basic philosophy of the

company, “service to our customers, opportunity to our employees,” has never changed since the

first yard opened many years ago.
