Supporting Our Community
We believe in supporting and giving back to our community. Stinson’s has been a family-owned, locally-operated business in Kern County for over 70 years. Community involvement and support is a natural part of who we are and what we do. Here are just a few of the organizations we support:
Service Since 1947
Ben Stinson, Sr. made Bakersfield his home in 1916 and started Stinson’s Grocery Co. Following in his father’s entrepreneurial footsteps, Ben Jr. opened Stinson Stationers in 1947. The new business quickly became a local solution for office products in Kern County. Early on Ben Jr. recognized the importance of delivery—delivering orders on his lunch break and on his way home from work. In less than five years, Stinson’s outgrew their original space and moved to a new location that included a warehouse and delivery facility. Soon after, Ben Sr. decided to join his son in the office supply business.
In 1981, Ben III took over as president at a time when the industry and market began dramatic changes. He was soon joined in 1983 by his brother-in-law, Russ Haley, as Vice President. Together they continue to run the business today, which includes a 52,000 square foot distribution facility and newly remodeled 13,000 square foot furniture showroom.
Stinson’s has survived the introduction of many national competitors and thrives in the extremely competitive office supply industry in the San Joaquin Valley. We adapt to changes based on market demand, and now more than 70% of our business comes from online sales. Today, our business has expanded past basic office supplies to include janitorial, safety, and green solutions. We have even come full circle carrying grocery items for your breakroom. No matter the changes our industry endures, you—the customer—will always come first for Stinson’s.
