In its 85th year, McCoy’s to open 84th unit

San Marcos, Texas-based McCoy’s Building Supply announced plans to open its first new location since 2007, with a store in Taylor, Texas. 

The store will mark the regional company’s 84th unit overall as it celebrates its 85th anniversary.

“We’re passionate about our business and proud of our success, but we never want to lose the special ‘hometown feel’ you experience as a McCoy customer,” said president and CEO Brian McCoy. “The innovations we’ve implemented over the past 85 years are never a substitute for the hands-on customer service.” 

The new store will also feature a new store design that focuses on energy conservation. VP store development Art Johnson explained: “We’ve simplified our floor plan, increasing its energy efficiency while decreasing its construction timeline.” 

A smaller, more efficient store further supports McCoy’s fundamental belief that its “Born-to-Build” customers want to get in, get out and get back to building as quickly as possible, the company said.

Construction on the store broke ground in August. The new store in Taylor will be McCoy’s first since Alpine, Texas, in 2007. 

“We’ve often been asked how we’re able to compete in these tough economic times,” said McCoy. “It’s simple. We concentrate on doing the things they can’t, like loading your lumber for you and having a manager on the floor. And if you’re a repeat customer, we’re probably going to know what project you’re working on and be able to greet you by name.” 

McCoy’s, the 2009 Home Channel News Pro Dealer of the Year, hosted a yard tour of a San Antonio location during the 2011 ProDealer Industry Summit.
