Metal Mart is owned by McElroy Metal based in Bossier City Louisiana. McElroy is a manufacturer of metal building materials and is a privately owned family business that started in 1963.
Metal Mart will offer metal building components, metal roofing, carports, patio covers, and other projects using steel.
Cody Goolsby is the Manager of the Merkel location and is a native west Texan with years of experience.
Goolsby worked in the manufacturing plant in Merkel before relocating to Amarillo as an Assistant Manager for several years. His latest assignment was in Texarkana as Store Manager for six years.
Goolsby recently expressed a desire to return to west Texas so Metal Mart considered this a perfect opportunity to open a retail facility in Merkel.
Metal Mart has expressed thanks to Roger Moore with the Merkel Economic Development Corporation and Merkel Chamber of Commerce for his efforts, and also Rode Owen from First Financial Bank for supplying the burgers and hotdogs for our official “Grand Opening” that will be held on April 7th at 12 noon.
