Premier North American Metal Solutions Franchise Opens First Store in the State

Warwick, RI – (February 24, 2020) — Metal Supermarkets, the world’s largest supplier of small quantity metals, will open its newest store at 177 Chestnut Street in Warwick, Rhode Island on Monday, February 24. Metal Supermarkets Warwick, which also services the Providence area, offers customers instant access to any metal, cut to size and ready fast, with no minimum order quantity.

“We are proud to expand our North American footprint with our first location in the state of Rhode Island,” said Stephen Schober, President and CEO of Metal Supermarkets. “We look forward to providing businesses and consumers throughout Warwick and Providence with Metal Supermarkets’ signature speed, variety, and convenience when purchasing metal.”

Metal Supermarkets serves a wide variety of businesses customers across various industries, including tool and die shops, manufacturers, maintenance managers, fabricators, machine shops, contractors, construction companies, military, healthcare, education and other government departments, as well as hobbyists and homeowners.

Metal Supermarkets stocks a diverse selection of metal types including hot-rolled steel, cold-rolled steel, stainless steel and aluminum in a wide variety of shapes including bar, tube, sheet, plate and more. The new store also offers value-added services such as production saw-cutting, shearing and same-day delivery.

The store is owned by Rumen Dimitrov who decided to pursue a Metal Supermarkets franchise after facing his own challenges in conveniently accessing metals for his other business.

“I know firsthand there is nothing like Metal Supermarkets in this area. I was looking to buy small quantities of metal to fix trucks and build shelves. Everywhere I went, I was asked to place a large order of metal – far bigger than I needed. These supplies were also far away,” said Dimitrov. “It was clear the Providence and Warwick area could benefit from what Metal Supermarkets has to offer, and I’m excited to be able to help area businesses with their small-quantity metal needs.”

The new store will be open Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday by appointment. Customers in the Providence/Warwick area can call 401-287-7343 or email
