A Look Back Part 2: Seigle’s Cabinets, 10 Year Anniversary!


Seigle’s was founded as the Elgin Lumber Company in 1881. (Check out what Elgin was like back then!). Over time the family-owned company grew to become one of the top 50 building materials dealers nationwide. No other supplier in the Chicago market rivaled the scope and breadth of Seigle’s.

In 2005, Stock Building Supply acquired Seigle’s, making it part of the nation’s top building material dealers. But in 2008, because of market conditions, Stock closed. Since Mark Seigle loves the business so much and just couldn’t stay away, and since the Chicagoland area still had so many loyal supporters of Seigle’s, Mark Seigle and family bought back the cabinetry operation in 2009. So in 2019, Seigle’s Cabinets celebrates its 10-year anniversary and solidified its position as the largest distributor of kitchen and bath cabinetry and countertops in the Chicago market. Thank you, Chicagoland, for your support!

We thought we’d look back at what the world looked like a decade ago, when Seigle’s Cabinets was re-established! Let’s go back to see a few things that happened in 2009!

  • Barack Obama is inaugurated the 44th President of the United States.
  • Rod Blagojevich is impeached after trying to sell Obama’s Senate seat.
  • Recovery from the economic downturn begins, although unemployment is still at 10.2%, the highest since 1983. Stimulus packages are distributed to spur consumer spending.
  • Barnes and Noble releases the Nook. The Kindle is on its second edition. iPhone 3GS is released.

  • Captain Sully safely lands his plane on the Hudson River, saving 155 passengers and crew.
  • The “Octomom” gives birth to 8 babies.
  • Jaycee Dugard, who had been kidnapped at 11 years old, is found 18 years later.

 

  • Susan Boyle gains overnight fame singing “I Dreamed a Dream” on Britain’s Got Talent.
  • Kanye West doesn’t let Taylor Swift finish her acceptance speech for Best Female Video at the MTV Video Music Awards.
  • Ashton Kutcher becomes the first to reach 1,000,000 followers on Twitter.
  • Facebook grows from 150 million members to 300 million members by September.

  • Sonia Sotomayor is confirmed as the first Hispanic and Latina Justice of the Supreme Court.
  • The husband and wife of Jon and Kate Plus 8 get divorced.
  • The Princess and the Frog, Up, The Hurt Locker, and Up in the Air are top movies in theaters

  • On July 25, Michael Jackson dies.
  • H1N1 (otherwise known as Swine Flu) sweeps across the globe and is declared a national emergency in the fall.
  • A family’s son floats away in a Mylar balloon in Fort Collins, Colorado—later revealed as a hoax.
  • Mike Perham becomes the youngest person (at 17) to solo circumnavigate the globe.

The days are long but the years are short! Some of this feels like ancient history, and some feels like only yesterday.

We are so happy to have grown to 6 locations throughout Chicagoland. Thank you again for being our favorite customers and allowing us to continue to do what we love!
