Metro Appliances & More staff members cut the ribbon to signify their new store is open, with encouragement from Webb City Chamber members.

Metro cuts ribbon for new store

The Webb City Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday at the new Metro Appliances & More on Range Line Road.

Employees touted the store’s 25,000-square-foot showroom and 65,000-square-foot warehouse. That means many more products are available, and it’s more likely a customer’s choice will be in stock.

The store employs 45 and that number is growing.

The new Metro showroom has 25,000 square feet of floor space – and a tall ceiling.
