S.W. Collins is a family-owned full-service lumber and building-material supply center. Since 1844 we have provided Aroostook County with the tools and products needed to build homes, barns, potato storages, sporting camps, garages, schools, hospitals, bridges, businesses, banks - in short, the infrastructure of the County. Though our goods are top-quality, our emphasis has always been on superior customer service and on building relationships; here in the County, our customers are also our friends and neighbors, and we're proud of that tradition.
The original S.W. Collins store is located in Caribou, Maine along the banks of the Caribou Stream. Next door to the store is the planing mill - not just a relic from our beginnings as a lumber mill, but a modern facility capable of high-quality turnings, moldings and cabinetry. The S.W. Collins Home Design Center at 41 Hatch Drive is just a stone's throw away from the main store, offering a superb selection of stock and custom cabinetry, countertops, and additional items to make your home distinctly yours. And just down the street is the S&G Bargain Barn, where, as they say, "one man's trash is another man's treasure."
A scenic fifteen-minute drive south on U.S. Route 1 will put you nearly on the doorstep of our newest store location on Rice Street in Presque Isle. Opened in 1994, the Presque Isle store has greatly expanded our capacity to serve County residents. Our primary market now extends from Madawaska and Fort Kent on the Canadian border all the way south to Houlton and Island Falls.
