Marvin’s Building Materials and Home Centers Announces New Location

Marvin’s Building Materials and Home Centers announced plans to open a new store in Ozark, Alabama.  The store is currently under construction on the corner of Deese Road and Highway 231.

“We have been looking for a site in Ozark for several years and we are very fortunate to build in one of the most convenient intersections for shoppers in the area,” said Darrin Gilliam, CEO.

The store will feature a 30,000 square foot home center in addition to an attached lawn and garden center and drive through lumberyard. The store will offer a complete line of building materials, appliances, electrical, plumbing, paint, millwork, hardware, tools, and lawn and garden products. It is expected to open in spring of 2015, according to Marvin’s owner, Michael Cohn, who commented, “We like to be members of the local community where we open a store and we look forward to introducing our Marvin’s team to the citizens of Ozark, Dale County, and the surrounding areas.”

“Just as we’ve found in many of our new stores, feedback from our meetings with the city indicates that we will capture a great deal of sales that are currently being served outside of the city and county,” says Gilliam.

The company was founded in 1945 by Marvin Cohn in Gadsden, Alabama and expanded into a multi-chain home center by his son, Alfred.  It is currently operated by third generation owners Michael and Daniel Cohn.  Marvin’s has 27 additional stores in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
