Metal Supermarkets Opens Newest Store in Birmingham, Alabama

Premier North American Metal Solutions Franchise Brings Store to Birmingham Market

August 22, 2019 // // Birmingham, Alabama - Metal Supermarkets, the world’s largest supplier of small-quantity metals, will open its newest store at 4550 Fifth Avenue South in Birmingham, Alabama on Monday, August 26. Metal Supermarkets Birmingham offers customers instant access to any metal, cut to size and ready fast, with no minimum order quantity.

Metal Supermarkets serves a wide variety of businesses and customers across various industries, including tool and die shops, manufacturers, maintenance managers, fabricators, machine shops, contractors, construction companies, military, healthcare, education and other government departments, as well as hobbyists and homeowners.

Metal Supermarkets stocks a diverse selection of metal types including hot-rolled steel, cold-rolled steel, stainless steel and aluminum in a wide variety of shapes including bar, tube, sheet, plate and more. The new store also offers value-added services such as production saw-cutting, shearing and same-day delivery.

The store is owned by Birmingham native Patrick Limbaugh. Prior to becoming a Metal Supermarkets franchisee, Limbaugh worked in a sales and marketing capacity for Nucor, a manufacturer of steel and steel products.

“Birmingham is the perfect fit to have a Metal Supermarkets store,” said Limbaugh. “Birmingham earned the nickname ‘The Magic City’ because of its history of iron, steel and metal production due to its abundance of natural resources. Metal Supermarkets will be the ideal location to serve companies and individuals that rely on metals of all kinds.”

The Birmingham store will be one of the first to feature Metal Supermarket’s updated retail design. The refreshed store model aims to improve the customer experience through a welcoming atmosphere and improved workflow for both customers and employees.

Individual customer service stations have replaced extended counter spaces that ran the length of the retail area in previous models. The smaller, more dynamic portals are designed to provide greater individual interaction between the staff and customers while also improving the feel and flow of the store.

The new design incorporates the familiar, rich Metal Supermarkets blue color scheme in addition to updated signage highlighting the store’s products and services. Metal Supermarkets has further improved the customer experience by upgrading the waiting areas with new refreshment stations and functional chairs featuring a sleek, modern design. These new sections provide customers with a relaxing area to stay comfortable while improving the flow of foot traffic within the store.

The new store will be open Monday to Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Customers in the Birmingham area can call 205-282-0360 or email to contact Metal Supermarkets or place an order.
