Established in 1978, Anthony Alexander began the company as a distributor of electrical supplies for residential, commercial, and light industrial customers. In 1986, the store was moved from it's original 4,000 sq.ft. location at 510 East Court Street to a 7,000 sq.ft. building located at 725 Big Nance Street downtown between Joe Wheeler Electric and Moulton City Hall. In 1998, Mr. Alexander purchased the assets of Hurst & Woods Plumbing Company and added a full line of plumbing supplies. As the company began to grow, the old Wal-Mart building at the intersection of AL Highway 157 and Court Street in 2007 was purchased. Half the building is now leased to Tractor Supply Company and in 2008 Electrical Outlet relocated to the other half. The business has now grown to fill a 19,000 sq.ft. facility.
In May of 2020, Colby and Brittany McLemore purchased Electrical Outlet.
Colby was born and raised in Moulton. He was a percussionist in the school band and later came to play drum set for many local bands including Highway 33 and Southern Comfort. He has always worked for small, locally owned businesses. He worked at The Sign Shop for nearly a decade, which is where he first gained experience serving our community. He lettered most of the buildings in town and worked closely with the city while lettering street signs and city buildings. After leaving the sign shop, he helped a close friend manage a hardware store in the Shoals, built cabinets, and worked construction. He returned to Moulton and began working at Electrical Outlet in 2018. He loves his community and is proud to call Moulton home.
Brittany was also born and raised in Moulton. She attended school at The University of Mississippi and earned a bachelor's degree in Music Education. After leaving Ole Miss, she spent some time traveling and lived in Kansas City, KS, Jacksonville, FL, Phoenix, AZ, and Arlington, TX before moving back home to Moulton. While in Phoenix, she began working for The Leona Group charter schools in the special education department and holds her same position today, working remotely. She is happy to be back home in her small town.
We have been married since 2017 and have a beautiful daughter, named Willa June. Willa loves to play at the hardware store and re-arrange inventory!
We are excited to continue serving the community with the same great customer service you've grown to know and love. We'd love to have you drop in for a visit.
Keep your eyes peeled for exciting, new updates!
We hope to see you soon!
