Marvin's Building Materials and Home Centers announced this week that a new store will open soon in Brewton.
Expected to open in late 2004, Marvin's describes itself as "friendly, neighborhood stores that make home improvement projects easy and affordable." The store is currently under construction at the former K-Mart site on 1840 Douglas Avenue (U.S. Hwy 31). It will include a 35,000-square-foot store with an attached lawn and garden center and drive-through lumberyard.
Marvin's opened its first store in 1945 in Gadsden, Ala. Over the past 59 years, Marvin's has grown to 21 stores in Alabama and Mississippi with more than 500 employees.
Marvin's stores feature a drive-through lumberyard that makes shopping for lumber, cement, roofing, and plywood easier.
Marvin's will hire 30 or more associates to work in the Brewton store.
Positions available range from store management to part-time cashiers and sales associates.
