SOUTH BOSTON, Va. (WSET) -- A business in South Boston is closing its doors after 100 years.

Boston Lumber Company is a family-owned lumber store that's been passed down for three generations.

Owners said it is a bittersweet experience.

They said they didn't have any luck in finding a buyer to keep the store running, so they had no choice but to close.

Nine employees were let go.

They are officially closed, but are having a liquidation auction on Saturday, May 19 at 9 .m. at their business on Philpott Road.
