"Big is not always best” ,we are big enough to buy right, yet small enough to call our customers by their first names. You’re not just a number when you walk in TM Supply.”
Hi, my name is Tony Morrash, and I am the owner of TM Supply in Luzerne. If you’re tired of visiting the big box stores for your building supply needs, and you’re tired of going back to the box stores only to find out your sales clerk, is now selling garden supplies. Then come see me and my staff at TM Supply. We are your family owned, local Home Center, in business for over 60 years.
The following is a newspaper article that was written 20 years ago about Tony and his company. Although it is basically the same, it has been updated to today’s world.
Every Saturday since he was 13 years old, Tony Morrash climbed into the car with his Dad and went to work at Koury’s Incorporated. His job consisted of sweeping floors, loading trucks and helping on deliveries; he was paid a couple of dollars and lunch – some Abe’s Hot Dogs.
Tony began working everyday after school and picked up hours around his school activities. This schedule continued through college too. As he grew older, his responsibilities grew with him. By the time he graduated from Wilkes College, he was managing the business. Then in 1989, he was given an opportunity to purchase the company he had worked for since he was 13 years old.
Koury’s Incorporated was founded in 1957, in Wilkes-Barre, by Maurice Koury, Tony’s mentor. “The man was like a second father to me, and taught me more in business then any classroom ever could. There is and old Japanese Proverb: Better then a thousand days of diligent study, is one day with a great teacher! Mr Maurice Koury was that great teacher!”, Tony said.
Tony did purchase Koury’s Incorporated in 1989 and changed the name to Koury’s Home Center, where he continued to supply both home owners and professional contractors with building supplies. The company has grown based on the principle of customer service and satisfaction. An informed sales staff, low prices, quality products and a wide variety of in-stock merchandise has allowed this small family owned business to compete with the large builder outlets.
“Big is not always best”, Tony says, we are big enough to buy right, yet small enough to call our customers by their first names. You’re not just a number when you walk in my store.”
