Homeowners and fixer-uppers have remodeled their kitchens and baths with products from East End Plumbing Supply for almost five decades. The local family-owned plumbing supply house has served Louisville since 1973. The showroom in East Louisville looks brand new and that’s because it is. It’s bigger too. A complete remodel in 2020 meant a new ceiling and walls, a metallic epoxied flooring that makes it look like you’re walking on the ocean, and a very cool new front door. “The western cedar portico entrance looks like you’re walking into a lodge out west,” says Scott Jackson, president of the company.
There are new professional-grade products in the showroom from manufacturers like American Standard, Brizo, Delta, DXV and Moen. “The things you see at the big-box stores, you’re not going to find here,” Scott says. “We pride ourselves that no matter what your budget, we're going to find you what you need for your project.”
Scott’s grandfather opened the plumbing supply house before Scott was born. “I’ve worked here since high school, almost 20 years,” Scott says, “and I’ve been here the least amount of time.” Some of the employees have been at East End for 30 to 40 years. “You’re not talking to a guy who just filled out an application to work here. We know the products and can coach you through the process.”
That’s why local businesses rock. And they’re the bedrock of the community.
