CES branch moves from Alvin to La Marque, the “Gateway to the Gulf.”

One of the 39 City Electric Supply branches in Texas recently relocated from Alvin to La Marque, TX. The branch moved out of Brazoria County and headed southeast to Galveston County, just 20 miles away from the original location. The new branch is prepared to serve the commercial, residential and industrial markets in the area and has 2,000 more square feet of space than the original location.

Branch Manager Michael Martini said in the press release that the move was successful. “This location has already brought in new clients. It’s also brought some old clients back to us because this location is so convenient for job sites. Instead of having everything hidden away in the back, we can present items and market them while people are in the showroom. They can see everything for themselves.”

The CES branch team moved everything to the new location while keeping their doors open to customers in the process. “It took a big investment from the company and my bosses, but it’s worth it. It’s helped us turn into a real one-stop shop for clients,” said Martini in the release. “We can hold more, and we’re easier to get to and from. We just needed a little more visibility, and we got it here in La Marque. We’re facing Interstate 45, which means about seven million people pass us in a year.”
