BUSINESS OF THE WEEK:
Bandon Supply
By Annette Langenstein, Staff Writer 

Tom and Sarah Stadelman, owners of Bandon Supply stand in front of a Bobcat E35 compact excavator, one of the many items for rent in their Outdoor Store.

Tom and Sarah Stadelman are the owners of Bandon Supply, located at 1120 Fillmore Ave SE in Bandon.  They opened the store 17 years ago, and have eight employees with over 170 years of combined experience. In addition to the Home Improvement store, they have an Outdoor Living and Rental store in the same parking lot. The Outdoor Living and Rental Center is a unique addition to the overall operation, serving as a rental store, a feed store, a garden center and a service department.

    Add in the largest selection of lumber and building materials, name brand rental equipment like Bobcat, Bomag, Genie, Ditch Witch and Vemeer, and the promise that ”we service what we sell,” Bandon Supply Do it Yourself Center and Bandon Supply Outdoor Living and Rental Center is THE most complete store in the Bay Area.     

    Tom grew up in the building industry.  His father was the original owner of what is now Hennick’s Home Center, just outside Bandon’s city limits. Tom remembers going to construction sites as a small child.  “I did construction work when I was 13 years old. We opened our first lumber yard in 1978. Francis Stadelman, my father, started the store from scratch and ran it for ten years before selling it in 1988. Tom added, “that inspired me to start my store, Bandon Supply, from scratch too.”

    When I asked Tom to describe his store, he replied, “Basically, Bandon Supply sells building supplies: siding, patio blocks, foundations, paint, roofing materials, flooring, hardware, tools, and everything else that you can think of that you need for your home. If we don’t have it, we can get it quickly from our vast network of suppliers. Our Outdoor Store has a rental center, and products for sale that are more centered on lawn care, work clothing ranging from raingear to boots, barbeques and children’s outdoor play equipment. We have farm animal feed featuring the Purina product line, as well as pet food, including Infinity and Red Flannel dog food.  Our feed is 5 star rated. We are a full-line dealer of Husqvarna and Cub Cadet motorized and hand tools.  These include riding and walk behind lawn mowers, chainsaws, weedeaters; pretty much everything you need to rent for the outdoors, we’ve got it.”

    Bandon Supply is conveniently located just off Highway 101 in beautiful Bandon by the Sea. Tom offered, “We’d like people to know the scope of what we have to offer,  what kind of service we have, and the kind of savings they’ll see here. We like to help people, and we understand that while we can’t necessarily have all people’s business, we’re grateful for what we have and do the best job possible to keep our customers satisfied.”

    Most of their staff has been with them for many years.  “When you come in here, if one person can’t help you, there’s always someone who can. Personally, I’m not great with plumbing and electrical, but I’ve got someone here that’s been with me for 17 years that is great in those departments.  I even worked with him at my dad’s store when I was a teenager,” says Tom.

    I asked Tom how their  Shopper ads are working out. “We’ve been advertising with the South Coast Shopper for ten years,” he said. “It seems like our Shopper ads are pretty effective. You don’t always know when an ad is working, but there are times when someone comes in and asks for something and I can tell they saw it in the Shopper.”

    So if you’re looking for any kind of home improvement item, or just need to grab a bag of high quality dog food, visit Bandon Supply Do it Yourself Center or Bandon Supply Outdoor Living and Rental Center. And if for some reason you can’t get in, give them a call. They have a large fleet of trucks and are able to deliver everything from a house package to decking to one of their pieces of rental equipment. The lumber yard is open 7:30 to 5:30 Monday through Friday, and Saturday from 8:00 to 4:30.  The Outdoor Living and Rental Center is  open Monday through Friday 8-5 and Saturday from 8-4. Their phone number is 541-347-2662. Tom concluded the interview with this statement: “ I enjoy what I do, and I plan to keep on doing it!”
