HUDSON, Mass. (AP) - A Hudson lumber and hardware store that’s been owned by the same family for 128 years has been sold.

Lamson Lumber announced that it has been sold to Koopman Lumber, another family-owned business based in Northbridge with seven locations. Terms of the sale were not disclosed.

Co-owner Lona Lamson tells The MetroWest Daily News (https://bit.ly/1ANMm1z ) that the business was started by her great-grandfather in 1887. It originally sold ice.

Lamson says the business is thriving, with sales up 20 percent last year, but she and her sister are getting older and none of their children want to take over.

Koopman co-owner Tony Brookhouse says Lamson will stay in the same location with the same employees, but he plans on adding more services.
