Our Story


Meet Keith and Wayne Stearns Owners of Stearns Supply Center. Established in 1978 by 2 brothers that had an entrepreneurial spirit at a very young age. They got their start selling night crawlers for .25 per dozen when they were in elementary school. They were taught the importance of hard work, honesty, and customer satisfaction from their father Don. He was a commercial and residential plumbing contractor in North Vernon and the surrounding counties. When Keith and Wayne would come home from college for the weekend Don would have them by his side working and learning the business. Don taught his boys to always treat people right and do their very best because your family name is riding on it. The boys felt very fortunate to have spent those years being taught from a loving father and mother that they greatly respected, and that was also well respected in their community.

Today Keith and Wayne continue with their father’s legacy of hard work, honesty, and customer satisfaction at Stearns Supply Center. Now being in business since 1978 the Stearns brothers have a professional support staff that has over 2 centuries of accumulated trade experience. They have grown their business to over 26,000 square feet of retail, showroom space, warehouse inventory and over 4 acres of pipe, septic and erosion control inventory. Stearns Supply Center has all of your cabinetry, countertops, plumbing, water purification, pipe, septic system, drainage, pumps and erosion control products that you need. We have the best selection and inventory of products in southern Indiana. We are the experts and we’re worth the drive!
