In the effort to do our part controlling community spread, we are encouraging customers to call their orders in advance to our Sales Team, then we will pull your order and place in a designated area, which will be communicated when you call.  If you need to visit the counter, please do so, understanding our attempts to maintain the CDC suggested social distancing.  Universal Supply requires you to wear a mask.  Please eliminate all physical contact and practice social distancing by attempting to maintain a minimum of 6 feet between yourself and other individuals.
