New Metals Supermarket Opens in Chicago Area
The newest Metal Supermarkets facility has opened in Bolingbrook, Ill., the fourth in the Chicagoland area and fifth in Illinois. Metal Supermarkets Bolingbrook, 999 Remington Blvd., has begun providing suburban businesses and consumers with the small quantity metals that are the franchise’s specialty.
"We are excited to further expand the company's footprint in Chicagoland and look forward to working to further develop the Metal Supermarkets brand," says Stephen Schober, president and CEO of the Mississauga, Ont.-based Metals Supermarket. "With so much industry in the southwest suburbs, the Bolingbrook store is in a great position to thrive."
Shirin Lakdawala and her husband Sabeer Cherawala will operate the new facility. They have extensive business experience together as hotel operators, though Cherawala also worked in metals distribution for the family business in his native India.
