Brown’s Builders Supply has been in business since 1936 when William A. Brown opened a small cabinet shop during the Depression era. The original one-room cabinet shop has since evolved into a full building supply with 13 outdoor sheds (warehouses) for large item storage and a main building/showroom that covers a block and a half on Hwy. 117. William eventually passed the reins to his son, Homer, who led the business for many years. Homer was a contractor who specialized in building upscale homes for the affluent in the area. While building those homes, he began to develop the cabinet shop into a small building supply as a way of providing his construction company with the necessary lumber, cabinets and other supplies needed. After many years of long hours in the construction business, Homer closed the construction aspect of the business and concentrated on retail sales of cabinets and building supplies. At that time, Brown’s also made the transition to selling manufactured cabinets rather that custom-built units. The custom cabinet business was rapidly sinking while the popularity of manufactured cabinets had greatly increased. Ron Brown (Homer’s son) has been president of Brown’s since 1991. A graduate of NCSU with a degree in chemical engineering, Brown returned to the family business in 1986 to assist his father. It was a welcome homecoming. Under Ron’s capable leadership, Brown’s continues to grow and is relied upon by many, both locals and those out-of-state, for their wide product range and excellent service. 

Brown’s is a complete center for all building needs. The main building/showroom carries samples of cabinets, countertops, windows, doors, columns, and many other items. With thirteen storage sheds, building components are readily available. Though the warehouses are fully stocked, you can also custom order specialty items using “just in time” delivery that gets the product to you in a timely manner. Brown’s does a large amount of local sales, but also conducts business all the way to the coast. They have a showroom in Jacksonville (“Designer Kitchen & Bath Center” at Brynn Marr Plaza) and another showroom in Wilmington (“Cabinet Gallery”). 

Great products and great service. It’s what has kept Brown’s in business and growing for 53 years now. Its a continuing legacy that will no doubt see the next generation on a proud family tradition.
