1707 Christy Dr.

Generous, faithful, stubborn 

After receiving her business administration degree from MU, Stephanie Scruggs realized the lumber business was in her blood.

“My great grandfather Cliff started Scruggs Lumber in 1919 with Henry Guhleman for the purpose of providing building materials to central Missouri,” she says. “We have been helping people with projects small and large for four generations.”

Stephanie is most comfortable crunching numbers, but you can also find her helping customers, merchandising the store, or even loading a truck.

“We are a family-owned business, and that means a lot to me,” says Stephanie. “Not only are my employees like family to me, but I want our customers to be treated like family too.”  

She believes the knowledge and experience of their team is what sets the company apart from its competitors. Stephanie also feels blessed to get to work with her dad, Bob, every day. “Over the years, I have felt that I am hanging on to his superhero cape, but now I know he was teaching me to fly on my own,” she says.
