Norris Merchandise has a long and proud history in Cleveland County. The building was originally built in 1947 by Alvin "Doc" Bridges and two of his partners. Back then it was known as Morris Packing Company and the company packaged everything from hamburgers, hotdogs, and t-bones to chitlins, livermush, and pig feet. In the 1950's Alvin went to the bank and purchased his partners shares of the company. By doing so, one of the stipulations was that he would have to rename the company. Finding that it would be costly to reprint the company packaging, invoices, and delivery trucks Alvin conveniently arranged to have a slug put into the printing changing the "M" in Morris to an "N" and thus Norris Packing Company was born. Norris Packing Company closed it's doors in 1973 and was reopened in 1983 by Alvin and his son David. Together they created what is today Norris Merchandise. The family continues today to strive to serve Cleveland County with the best home furnishings in the area as well as archery, work and hunting apparel, hardware, and road pipe.
