Murray Supply Co., a Winston-Salem, N.C.-based plumbing wholesaler, will hold "Welcome to Smallville" for its customers, a combination counter day/tabletop show featuring 12 “small” vendors. The events will be held at its five branches (all in North Carolina): Winston-Salem, March 30; Charlotte, April 6; Hickory, April 19; Raleigh, April 27; and Apex, May 4. It will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This program was developed for the Affiliated Distributors Joint Marketing Plan for 2005. Murray Supply selected some of the smaller A-D vendors to target for sales and purchase dollars growth, including B&K Industries, Camco Manufacturing, Commercial Enameling, Eemax, Hubbard/Hold-Rite, Imcoa/Nomaco, Mifab, Mill-Rose Co., Taracorp, TurboTorch and Shurtape.

Customers will be given a “key” to Smallville, a card that each vendor checks off after the customer has visited its “storefront” to learn about its products. Completed “key” cards can be entered in drawings for door prizes.
