New Lumberyard to include some Stubblefields flare

PULLMAN (Murrow News 8) – A pair of Pullman businesses, which shut down during the pandemic, will get new life at one of the old locations.

The Lumberyard, which closed in July 2020, will reopen under new management. That new management? DJ Goldfinger, the longtime general manager of Stubblefields, which had closed in August 2020.

Over the past week, social media videos from the account for Stubblefield’s, which was a campus hotspot for almost two decades, teased the return of Goldfinger.

“Different name. Same Me. New venue,” said a September 14 Instagram post.

This week, Goldfinger clarified: This is not the return of Stubblefields, but the reopening of The Lumberyard, with some familiar amenities.

“We want this place to be very family friendly during the day time,” Goldfinger told Murrow News 8. ”There’s going to be four restaurants inside here, a game room, two bars, and two play centers actually.”

That set-up reflects the former business, referred to as a “food truck hall,” allowing customers to choose from a number of different menus.

In addition to the familiar Lumberyard set-up, Goldfinger said on weekend and special event nights, some things familiar to Stubblefields fans will return.

He said that includes Stubby glasses, and specials on the drinks which go in them.

“I think at night, Fridays and Saturdays, and maybe even that Tuesday, we might deliver something a little extra here for the students here in town,” he said. “That would be the dance floor, some of the stages, and definitely the lights.”

The Lumberyard is set to reopen for events on October 1 & 2.
