“Wages start from $10 to $12,” said Brewer. “The work is hard but there’s room for advancement. I’ve enjoyed working there.”

He said the location was fundamental for developing a distribution center in that area.

“We try to reach the furthest we can in the shortest amount of time and Marianna was ideal for reaching the tip of Florida, to Dothan, to Bainbridge and to reaching our largest store in demand, which is in New Orleans in Louisiana. Amazingly that store has six registers and receives a whole trailer of merchandise each week where most only need a third.”

The biggest demand that they’re trying to satisfy at the moment, Brewer said, was for groceries.

“Food is a very competitive market and we’re trying to get you into those stores,” he said. “We actually eat the cost of food in the hopes of getting you into the store to purchase something else. We’re not making any money on our food distribution, but we think this is what it takes to get you in and keep you coming in.”
