Nation’s Best Expands in Kentucky Adding Two More Locations

March 4, 2024, DALLAS, Texas – Nation’s Best, one of the country’s fastest growing independent home improvement companies, continues to expand its national footprint, acquiring two additional locations in Kentucky. With the addition of Pilot Lumber’s stores in Alexandria and Bellevue, Kentucky, Nation’s Best brings its total location count to 54 across 16

“While other companies may have slowed their growth plans, Nation’s Best continues to see tremendous opportunities to add to our family of outstanding home centers,” said Chris Miller, President & CEO of Nation’s Best. “The addition of Pilot Lumber now makes three stores in Kentucky for us, following our acquisition of Malone Lumber this past month.”

“Steve Bennett of Pilot Lumber has done a good job modernizing his two Kentucky locations,” noted Miller. “They are operationally sound, and Steve has strengthened already solid teams to deliver exceptional service to the stores’ contractors and customers. Pilot Lumber has the hallmark of a great business that has the potential to grow further as part
of Nation’s Best.”

As part of Nation’s Best’s successful branding strategy, Pilot Lumber will maintain operations under its existing brand name with its leadership team overseeing company operations alongside Nation’s Best, which will provide the strategic and financial support necessary to drive optimal growth and profitability.
