Marvin's plans Tennessee home center

Marvin's Building Materials and Home Centers announced plans to open a new store in Fayetteville, Tenn.

The new store in Fayetteville is the first of at least two new stores planned for Marvin’s in 2012 and the first store in Tennessee to take on the company's new-store format. It will soon be under construction at the former Food Lion shopping center on Huntsville Highway, Highway 431.  

The store, expected to open in February of 2012, will feature a 35,000 square foot home center with an attached lawn and garden center and drive through lumberyard.  

The store will offer a complete line of building materials, electrical, plumbing, paint, millwork, hardware, tools, and lawn and garden products. 

“Making our customers’ lives easier with affordable, quality solutions is what Marvin's is all about," said Darrin Gilliam, President and CEO. "We have been working towards a store in the city of Fayetteville and Lincoln County since 2006.  Fayetteville is the first new concept store of several that we hope to open in the great state of Tennessee.”

The company expects to capture sales that previously went to businesses outside the city and county, Gilliam said.

Marvin's will hire approximately 25 associates to work in the new store. 

The company opened two new stores in Monroeville, Ala. in May and expects to open Eufaula, Ala., in October of 2011. The company was founded in 1945 by Marvin Cohn in Gadsden, Alabama. 

Marvin's, named the 2010 Retailer of the Year by the Home Channel News, currently operates 27 stores in Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia.
