Commitment to Service

When we say, “Everything for Building, Remodeling, and Home Improvement since 1895”, we mean it. Windows. Doors. Custom Millwork Shop. Architectural Support. Kitchen and Bath Design. Product Knowledge. Building Materials. Vast, diverse shipping fleet. Showrooms. Dedicated local support.

A full-service lumber yard, and six locations, Mid-Cape Home Centers is committed to providing building supplies and experience that will help southeast Massachusetts remain one of the best places to live in America. Let Mid-Cape help you through every step of your project, and see why our commitment to service is one of the many contributing factors that makes the Mid-Cape Experience one of a kind.

A family run organization on the Cape, Islands, and South Shore, Mid-Cape understands the importance of building local and supporting local communities. Mid-Cape Home Centers: 125 years of commitment to quality, service, and you.


Our History

For more than 125 years, Mid-Cape Home Centers has been providing quality building materials to professional builders and homeowners involved in new construction and home improvement on Cape Cod, the Islands and the South Shore.

The legacy began in 1895, when Captain Oscar C. Nickerson gave up command of the schooner Abel W. Parker and purchased the Kelley and Eldredge Lumber Co. in Chatham… the beginning of what was later to become Nickerson Lumber Company and eventually Mid-Cape Home Centers.

While our commitment to serve has never changed, a lot else has over the years—especially lately.

In 2012, what began as the Nickerson Lumber Company was sold to local resident Jeff Plank in a move that signaled the end of a long and successful era. For the first time in 117 years, Mid-Cape Home Centers would be led by someone other than a Nickerson. It was a moment to pay tribute to the company’s rise from its humble origins. It was also a moment to look ahead—it was a chance to grow.

Throughout all this change, one thing that has remained constant is the mentality of our team. From the forklift operators and kitchen designers to the hardware specialists and contractor sales agents, everyone who puts on a Mid-Cape shirt is invested. Invested in their fellow associates and invested in the company, invested in every single customer who walks in the front door, and invested in working hard so that when you choose Mid-Cape, you choose honest service from genuine people.

At Mid-Cape Home Centers, all of our team members have the important job of representing who we are and what we stand for. That’s why we believe that if always making the customer happy is the foundation of a successful business, then showing your staff how much you value them is the very ground upon which that foundation can be built.

Company President Jack Stevenson puts it this way — “our people drive our business; you just can’t do it without them. If you listen to your people, empower them and work with them, you’ll be closer to your customers.”

At Mid-Cape, we pride ourselves on having high-quality representatives that take the time to get to know our customers and make them feel welcome. Hang around long enough and you’ll hear contractors talking about how their dads and their grandfathers shopped here, and when you ask what keeps them coming back, the answer is simple: it’s the people.

That’s why more than just a lumber and building supply company, Mid-Cape Home Centers is a community. Bringing people together is something that matters to us, so we try to do right not just by our patrons, but by the greater Cape Cod community, too.

Today and always, Mid-Cape is dedicated to providing the building supplies that will help southeastern Massachusetts remain one of the best places to live in America. More than just a lumber and building supply company, Mid-Cape’s specialty is experience that builds. Experience that builds convenience, experience that builds trust, experience that builds communities. Let our experienced team help with every step of your project, from start to finish.
