Marvin’s plans store No. 28

Leeds, Ala.-based Marvin's Building Materials and Home Centers announced plans to open its 28th store, and its second in Tennessee.

The 30,000 sq.-ft. store with an attached lawn and garden center and drive-through lumberyard is currently under construction in the Parkway Shoppes Plaza on Highway 431.

“We have been looking for a site in the Lewisburg and Marshall County area for years, just as we did in Fayetteville,” said CEO Darrin Gilliam. “We were very fortunate to locate in one of the most convenient intersections for shoppers in the area.

The Lewisburg location will be the second Marvin’s store in Tennessee after opening in Fayetteville in 2012. The store in Lewisburg is expected to open in June 2013.

“With consumers placing a priority on value and convenience, Marvin’s is focused on offering friendly service, low prices and a best-in-class shopping experience,” said Michael Cohn, owner of Marvin’s. 

“Every opportunity that we have to bring this concept to a new market is a testament to our current associates and their commitment to provide exceptional service to our customers,” continued Cohn.

Marvin’s was founded in 1945 by Marvin Cohn in Gadsden, Alabama and was expanded into a multi-chain home center by his son, Alfred. It is currently operated by third generation owners, Michael and Daniel Cohn. Marvin's has 27 stores in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. Marvin’s was named the 2012 Entrepreneur of the Year by the Lumber and Building Material Journal and was awarded the 2010 Retailer of the Year by the Home Channel News.
