Concrete, landscape supply firm hosting grand-opening festivities

The public is invited to grand-opening festivities Friday through Sunday at the new site of Diamond Central Building Materials.

The 4-year-old business recently moved from Placerville to 1091 White Rock Road in El Dorado Hills. It occupies the former site of Dusty Creek Lumber Co., which closed in 2010 after more than 25 years in business.

Starting Friday from 5-9 p.m. and running through the weekend, Diamond Central’s grand opening will include live music, free food, raffle prizes, discounts, kids’ activities and product demonstrations.

Diamond Central is a masonry, concrete and landscape supply store geared to contractors, homeowners and do-it-yourselfers. The family-owned business is run by Ken and Heidi Drury, who characterize their company as a customer-focused alternative to “big box” warehouse stores.
