August 02, 2022 // Franchising.com // ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Metal Supermarkets arrives in Alexandria as a disruptive force.
The supplier of small-quantity metals will open its newest location in Alexandria on Monday, August 29, instantly becoming the one-stop shop offering speed, variety and convenience for professionals and hobbyists alike. Metal Supermarkets stores specialize in the sales and distribution of all types and ranges of metal including hot and cold rolled, aluminum copper, brass and stainless in bars, tubes, angles, channel, sheet and plate to meet the needs of a wide and diverse variety of customers that require these essential products.
Metal Supermarkets Alexandria offers 8,000 types, shapes and grades of metal, cut to each customer’s exact specifications. Brandishing its signature world class customer service, Metal Supermarkets will be the trusted metals supplier for local manufacturers, machinists, maintenance and repair, tool and die shops, hospitals, hotels, universities, schools, homeowners, artists, hobbyists and more in Alexandria.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to open a second Metal Supermarkets location,” said Theresa Lora, owner of Metal Supermarkets Alexandria. “The pandemic made running our first Metal Supermarkets store in Beltsville, Maryland a little challenging, but we had a great staff that helped make things easier. Now, we have an incredible staff at the Alexandria location that will provide the same tremendous support to area businesses and the Alexandria community.”
Theresa Lora and her husband Marcos opened their first store in 2015. Prior to joining the Metal Supermarkets team, the couple owned two other businesses, but recognized the need for Metal Supermarkets in their community in Beltsville. Following the success of the Beltsville store, Theresa wanted to expand the presence, opening her second location in Alexandria. In addition to Theresa and Marcos, the Alexandria team will be joined by Carlos Guzman as the manager, who is currently the manager of the Beltsville location.
Each Metal Supermarkets location provides solutions to customers’ metal needs in both the business-to-business and business-to-consumer categories. With a diverse product base and a no-minimum order quantity, Metal Supermarkets will quickly earn long-lasting relationships with customers as a result of delivering an exceptional customer experience.
“Our product is metal, but our passion has always been our customer service and providing businesses, homeowners and hobbyists with solutions to their metal needs,” said Stephen Schober, President and CEO of Metal Supermarkets. “We have been impressed with the drive and commitment that Theresa and her team have displayed as she moves ahead to get Metal Supermarkets open in Alexandria to serve as an essential business to the community.”
