This week’s business spotlight is BR Supply located at 14965 Highland Drive. BR Supply has been open in McKenzie since 1999 by Barry Reed from Humboldt. Mr. Reed now has ten stores spread across West Tennessee.

Before BR Supply was opened, it was called KT Supply. Mr. Reed had worked for KT Supply as the regional manager of five different stores. When KT Supply closed, Mr. Reed started his own supply company.

The building that BR Supply is now home to was once the old bowling alley in the 1960's. When the bowling alley closed, a skating rink opened. During that time, bands, such as the Doobie Brothers, were hosted and people came to dance and roller skate.

Regional manager of all five locations, Ed Long, is a devout Christian and is a pastor at the Union Primitive Baptist Church in McKenzie located on Interstate 40. Ed has been the regional manager for fourteen years.

Also working at BR Supply are Keven Rogers, Ronnie Story and Harold Vinson. Keven Rogers has been working with BR Supply for nine years and is manager of the store. Ronnie Story has also been with BR Supply for nine years and works at the counter and also delivers products to customers. Harold Vinson has been worked in a supply store for almost forty years.

The most common product that customer’s seek with BR Supply are heating and air necessities. Customers also seek help with plumbing problems or how to fix something. BR Supply welcomes every question a customer asks and they are more than willing to help that customer to the best of their ability.

BR Supply carries many different products that are readily available to the customers. There are janitorial supplies, full house air and heating units, duct equipment for the full house units, different sizes of water heaters, wire, light bulbs and even well supplies. There are over 4,300 different items of stock located at BR Supply and if an item is not in stock, they will go above and beyond to find the product.

Ed Long has expressed the businesses interest in possibly expanding later in the future. When the business started in 1999, there were only five locations, there are now double the locations.
