Diamond Building Supply to close operation

Red Bank&#8217;s oldest lumber yard is closing this fall after more than 75 years of operation. <strong>Diamond Building Supply</strong>, a lumber yard and distributor of building parts on Dayton Boulevard, began a liquidation sale Thursday as the owners prepare to retire. The business has operated under different owners and names since the 1940s in Red Bank.

&#8220;It&#8217;s tough to compete with the larger warehouse stores,&#8221; said <strong>Tim Richardson</strong>, general manager for the five-employee business. &#8220;The building industry is cyclical, but it&#8217;s never been down for so long.&#8221;

Medical spa &#0010;adds treatment

The <strong>Tin Aesthetic and Wellness Spa </strong>opened Thursday in Fort Wood with the only &#8220;Lumenis One&#8221; treatment in Chattanooga.

The new spa, located at 930 Oak Street, features a state-of the-art laser hair, vein and sun spot removal machine that combines intense pulsed light and ND YAG lasers for dramatic improvements to imperfections like spider veins, age spots, sun damage, unwanted hair and ruddy complexions. <strong>Susan Hargis</strong> is the director and <strong>Dr. Pe Tan Tin </strong>is the medical director for the new business.
