COVID-19 (Novel Corona Virus) is impacting us all.
We know these are difficult times. We'll get through it.


We have been deemed an essential service and will be remaining available to keep the supply of hardware and building materials flowing for our professional customers and the construction industry.

The health and welfare of our staff, our customers, and our communities remains our number 1 priority in these unprecedented times. Effective immediately, we have decided that it is in the best interests of all stakeholders that we limit customer access inside our stores as it is all of our responsibility to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus while continuing to service your hardware and building supply needs.

All orders for pick up or delivery must now be placed over the phone, fax, email, or text message. We will confirm receipt of your order and coordinate safe pick up or delivery with you. For payment, we will begin to make an exception to our normal policies and accept credit card over the phone (over $1000 requires management approval) or e-transfer to e2eae641n1ge0nZ1ggehM9fg8fhcKehlFewKbD|. House account holders will have their sales processed to their account as per usual.

As we are working with reduced staff to limit exposure and offer as much opportunity as possible for our people to self-isolate, we ask for your patience as we temporarily transform the way we do business together.

Construction site deliveries remain largely unaffected, however, out of respect for our front-line delivery personnel and in order to maintain social distancing, we will no longer be entering buildings under construction that are occupied by individuals other than our staff. Please be aware that delivery lead times may be slightly extended going forward. The more notice our customers can provide of their needs, the better for everyone.

We appreciate your business and support during these tumultuous times. We will be continuing to serve you to the best of our ability, and your patience and flexibility is greatly appreciated.

Serving you for nearly 70 years.

Builders, contractors and consumers rely on Akins-Brewer for lumber and building materials.

Our promise remains as strong today as it did nearly 70 years ago...deliver quality products, service, expert advice and competitive pricing.

Akins-Brewer is an independently owned and operated building supply store located in Shakespeare, Ontario, Canada.

In August of 2017, Akins-Brewer Lumber was purchased by the owners of Allen Building Centre, another member of Castle in Woodstock, Ontario. In combining our efforts, we have significantly increased our volume, expertise and experience, and are continously working toward enhancing our service and product offerings.

Akins-Brewer has been and continues to be a staple in the Shakespeare community. We are a full service supplier of lumber and building materials to both large and small contractors, DIY'ers, and farmers. Akins-Brewer remains proud of its small town roots and we continue to grow to better serve the needs of our community.

Stop in and visit our yard and let the knowledgeable sales staff assist you with any project, big or small.

Enjoy the benefits of a small town atmosphere. Outstanding customer service. Quality products. Competitively priced.
