Magic Mart was founded by the Ammar family. The first store was opened in 1967 in Grundy, Virginia. In the early 90s, the company experimented with larger store size,extending the stores from 35,000 to 80,000 square feet. The largest store was in Lenoir, North Carolina, but is nowclosed. Several locations have been closed, including the North Carolina and Elizabethton,Tennesseestores.
More than 100years in business would suggest that Magic Martis a good retail store, but the closedlocationsmay stateotherwise or mightbe a consequence of extenuating factors, such as the economy ormarket competition. Magic Mart offers apparel, sporting goods, housewares, toys, automotive,and health and beauty products online and at its 21 locations.
