Monthly Update – January 2017

Announcements

  • Universal Supply is proud to partner with you in providing premier building materials for your projects. We also are honored to partner with local organizations to help our communities, which is why we’re teaming up with several area food banks to collect non-perishable food items. In New Jersey, nearly 15 percent of our residents can’t always afford the food they need for themselves or their families. We’re undertaking the fight against hunger, and we hope that you will join us in this fight.

  • From Dec. 1 through Jan. 31, 2017, we will be accepting food donations at all our locations.  We can accept canned, boxed or plastic containers of fruits, vegetables, soups, pasta, vacuumed sealed dairy, cereal etc.  Please note that we cannot accept previously opened containers, repackaged and homemade items,   outdated products, or perishables, such as fruit, vegetables, dairy items, etc. and we cannot accept items in glass containers.  If you wish to provide financial support to your local food bank, please speak to your local Universal Supply Branch Manager for more information.  Thank you again for your support.

  • Due to a change by the State of New Jersey, as of January 1, 2017 we will no longer be able to offer 3.5% tax from our Trenton location.
