September 12, 2012 // Franchising.com // July was a record-breaking month for Metal Supermarkets, the world’s largest supplier of small quantity metals. The Burnaby, British Columbia franchise location broke the company’s all-time monthly sales record for a single location.
It is the second time this year that the Burnaby Metal Supermarkets location accomplished this; in March it also set a monthly sales record. On a year to date basis it is the highest-performing location in the system.
