high country materials

High Country Materials opened last weekend in the True Value shopping center.  High Country stocks and sells all manner of rock, sand, slag, and soil, including road base, decorative rock, and rail road ties.

Doug Branch, High Country owner, grew up in the valley but moved away for a while.  He came back five years ago and began paving driveways and trucking.  He noticed that anybody that wanted any work done had to order the materials from far away.  “I saw a need and decided to do something about it,” he offers.

High Country had a great opening weekend, in spite of the snow.  “We had a bunch of new customers this weekend, we had a lot of fun,” Doug explained.

Most material is in stock, and many more items can be ordered.  High country keeps regular hours, posted on their sign, plus will make appointments for other times.  All material can be delivered, or feel free to pick it up yourself.  High Country can be reached at 251-6027.
