Marvin's Building Materials and

Home Centers New Store Openings.

Leeds, Alabama, July 19th, 2011

Marvin's Building Materials and Home Centers is pleased to announce plans

to open a new store in Eufaula, Alabama. The store will soon be under

construction at the former Wal-Mart site shopping center on Hwy 431,

and is expected to open in early October or sooner. The store will feature

a 34,000 square foot home center with an attached lawn and garden

center and drive through lumberyard. The store will offer a complete line

of building materials, electrical, plumbing, paint, millwork, hardware, tools,

and lawn and garden products. Marvin’s is known for its friendly,

neighborhood stores that make home improvement projects easy and

affordable. “Making it easy for our customers is what Marvin's is all

about," said Darrin Gilliam, CEO. “We’ve been working towards the goal of

opening a store to serve Eufaula for several years. The city has been very

helpful throughout the process. All the pieces finally came together to

make it happen. Our research indicates we will capture a great deal of

sales that are currently being served outside of Barbour County. We

would like to thank the very hard efforts of Mayor Jay Jaxon, Economic

Development Director Jim Bradley, Director of Planning Sheri Proctor, and

the entire city council in support of this project,” said Gilliam.

Marvin's will hire approximately 25 associates to work in the new store.

"We like to hire friendly people from the community. All of our stores

have a 'hometown' feel," said Gilliam. The Chamber of Commerce is

collecting employment applications for all open positions. People who are

interested may pick up and turn in their application at the Chamber of

Commerce located at 333 East Broad Street Eufaula, AL 36027.

Available positions range from management to part-time associates. Job

descriptions and more information about Marvin’s can be found on our

website at www.marvins.com. DHS Ventures from Daphne, AL is the

developer on this project and plans on revitalizing the center with a total

of 3 additions by nationally ranked tenants.

The new store in Eufaula is the second of two new stores for Marvin’s in

2011. Monroeville, AL opened in late May. Marvin's currently operates

26 stores in Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia. Marvin’s was named the

2010 Retailer of the Year by the Home Channel News.
