Who We Are

The Shallotte Electric Stores were founded by Alton and Edna (E.B.) Milliken along with two of their teenage sons Al and Jamie. They rented a red and white grocery store building in June of 1971. The family stocked shelves and in some cases used empty boxes to give the appearance of a large inventory.  Their timing in starting the business was good as the Brunswick County beaches became more and more popular. as Brunswick County Grew so did the business.

Today the Shallotte Electric Stores carry a complete ling of Electrical, Plumbing, Waste Water, Lighting, and Major Brand Appliances. The Shallotte Electric Stores employ's over 50 dedicated employees that share the founder's dreams of excellent customer service. Stop by today and see why we say,

"Your dream home is in our showroom"
