The business has been at the Taylor St location for seven years but with costs rising, a general slowdown in the building industry and a scarcity of stock, owners Peter Robertson, daughter, Luka and son Rookie have decided to get out while they are ahead.
“It’s much harder to get materials these days,” Luka Robertson said.
“It’s quicker for demolishers to knock buildings over and crush it all up and put it in the landfill than it is to deconstruct it and sell it.”
On top of all this, the Robertsons failed to renegotiate a new lease with their landlord.
“It just got complicated and messy,” Ms Robertson said.
