A well known Zanesville area business has a new owner.  Thomas Lumber Town at 3100 Dillon Falls Road has been sold. Ron Thomas says the deal has been in the works for a while. He says the Dillon Road facility was sold to Jim Cappano who owns a building supply company.  Cappano says Preferred Building Supply has locations in Newark and Cleveland.  Cappano says Thomas Lumber Town has a great reputation and will be a perfect fit for his growing company. He says all 14 employees will keep their jobs. Thomas Lumber Town has been in business for 50 years and moved to its current location after a fire destroyed the original lumber yard on Maple Avenue in August of 1962.
