The world’s largest supplier of small-quantity metals will open its newest location in Alexandria, Va. on 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.

As the fourth location in Virginia, Metal Supermarkets Alexandria offers 8,000 types, shapes and grades of metal, cut to each customer’s exact specifications. 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, the company claims.

“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.”

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.”

With locations across the United States Canada and the United Kingdom, the Alexandria opening comes amid a pivotal growth period for the international metal-supply business. Deemed an essential business, the supplier ensures each customer in Alexandria will always be able to acquire what they need.
