Missoula’s Cedar Products Unlimited owner retiring after 35 years. Company is for sale
Cedar Products Unlimited is at 2135 S. Third St. W., and sells everything from handmade lawn chairs to garden boxes to decking. It’s actually as much of a manufacturing business as it is a retail business, because longtime employee Roy Smith works in the shop with Denton all winter, building the products from raw lumber.
“We’re don’t have an Internet presence at all,” Denton said. “If we did, we wouldn’t be able to keep up with demand.”
“I’m hoping to keep it a ‘ma and pa’ type of operation,” Denton said, “It’s a great location. There’s five city lots here. When they re-did Third Street, it really commercialized and made a nice business section here for us.”
