Copeland Lumber, which opened in the early 1950s, will be closing, according to the busineness' parent company, Bend, Ore.-based Tum-A-Lum.
About 17 full-time and part-time employees will be affected, the company said. Copeland will liquidate its lumber yard over the next few weeks.
Tum-A-Lum, which bought Copeland in 2002, said Carson City has been a good place to do business, but the slow building market forced the closure.
Tum-A-Lum owns five other lumber yards in Oregon and California.
