About Us - Our History

Building 9 is open to the public and welcomes homeowners, remodeling contractors, real estate investors, churches, and local businesses to stop in and see our money-saving selections.
Our core products consist of kitchen and bath cabinets, new construction and replacement windows, glass block windows, doors, moldings, vinyl siding, and a wide range of flooring products including laminate flooring, porcelain floor tile, luxury vinyl tile, and rolled vinyl flooring, as well as solid hardwood flooring, and “flying” carpet squares, too.

Our closeouts and special liquidation programs consist of various building materials where we make very special, one-time purchases of manufacturers, overruns, line changes, canceled orders, factory changes or discontinued items such as name brand bath accessories, lighting fixtures, door hardware, sinks & faucets, plywood, cabinet doors, cabinet hardware, composite decking, and landscaping supplies for example. (all materials subject to change)
These deals offer an even GREATER BARGAIN and TREMENDOUS VALUE when compared to any other retailer.
(Many times, we have agreements not to advertise brand names.)

Building 9 started in business back in 1983 as South Main Supply, in a large 60,000 square foot, industrial warehouse near downtown Akron, Ohio.
A retail supplier of surplus and salvage building materials; our inventory consisted mostly of exterior home improvement products such as plywood, siding, roofing, doors, and windows.

Due to an ODOT highway construction project in 2015, we had to relocate our Akron, OH store location and decided to build a new 42,000 square warehouse and showroom at 546 Medina Road on Route 18 in Medina, Ohio. Conveniently located between Interstate 71 and Interstate 77.
