To the gentleman who helped me last night (6/3/29) I want to thank him so much. He went out of his way to find me a piece of scrap plywood and cut it to fit my template. It fit perfectly and he didn't Charge me anything.It's rare to find that kind of service anywhere these days. I will recommend them to everyone I know.Thanks so much.😀🤩

Always super helpful. My wife is building her She Shed and they have not only had the supplies on hand but have given some great advice.

A little while back I went around town to price 2x12s I had planned to use as decking and this was the only place that warned me about the cupping issues that this design would risk having. Now this is my first choice for all lumber purchases. 🙂

Owner is nice and Debby is knowledgeable, but the others aren't much on customer service. I couldn't be happier that I left such a negative and racist work environment it's the best move I ever made!

We enjoyed doing business here when Debby was there. She was very nice and enjoyable to work with. We have spent thousands of $$$ with this company. This time we were treated very rudely by a racist man named Danny. Apparently, he was upset because he saw my notes comparing costs with other companies on the quote Debby gave me. He didn't want to honor the quoted prices, and he didn't want to print me out a new quote saying we would have to purchase all the items from them. No thank you! I'd rather drive to Maximus in MS for our building materials where they are much nicer!

Needed lumber that is not typically not carried at regular home stores so I reached out to Jimmy Whittington Lumber Company, I called and service was great, I came in paid for my purchase and had the lumber sitting in my driveway in just a couple hours. I was very satisfied, delivery was quick, and the prices very reasonable. Will deff use again for my lumber needs.

Couldn't find 2x4x8's anywhere - I needed 80 to build my fence. Home Depot and Lowe's didn't have them in stock and had no idea when they were getting them in. I called Jimmy Whittington's and they had plenty! Their staff were friendly, efficient, and were great to work with! I will go to Whittington's from now on for all of my lumber! Thanks!

I am extremely disappointed with Danny Clark.Think twice before working for this man.He is rude, unprofessional and should not be allowed to represent Jimmys great company. Dan Mayhew is an absobulte gem! Jim Jr is also a wonderful man.Danny Clark needs prayers and a job better suited for his disrespectful personality. The absolute worst man to work for. He ruins the companies great name.
