Don Burns went to work for Gillette Contractors Supply in March of 1989 as manager of the Casper Branch store. The Casper branch started out with half of a mini warehouse on Fairgrounds Road. That location lasted for about six months. Don would go to Gillette once a week to pick up stock and bring it back to Casper. Since this was before cell phones were really affordable, he worked mainly out of his pickup truck and had a pager for customers to get in contact with him.
The store moved from the mini warehouse on Fairgrounds Road into half of the building at 2060 Salt Creek highway. Bonnie Burns came on board in June of 1990. Don continued to make sales calls and his weekly run to Gillette for stock while Bonnie was in the office with a real telephone.
A year later the business moved to 4718 West Yellowstone highway. We got the entire building this time! We remained there for 9 years.
In July of 1998, Gillette Contractors Supply kicked us out of the nest. That is when we officially became a full fledged stand alone store and took the official name of Casper Contractors Supply, Inc.
In January of 2000 the doors opened at our current location, 664 Circle Drive. It has been a long hard haul at times, but well worth it. And surprise, we grew out of this building too! However, we were able to expand our space at our current location instead of having to move again. Come in and see how far we have come! Oh, and yes, we still have cookies!
