Our History

Springfield 1930's

Quality and Value From 1934 to the Present

When Everett Squires opened our doors in 1934, he started a building supply store and a family legacy. The business has evolved from a custom door shop to providing a wide selection of building products.

The Squires’ family has owned and operated Southern Supply for over eight decades and have continued to launch a network of sister stores, including SMC Electric Supply, Boyd Aluminum, Southern Materials and Distinctive Home Products.

Southern Supply also has two showroom and sales locations in Hollister and Joplin at Distinctive Home Products. As your complete building and remodeling solution, Distinctive Home Products features KOHLER® plumbing fixtures and MARVIN Windows & Doors, as well as other high quality brands for cabinets, countertops and millwork. Jointly owned with Southern Materials, we are confident that we can meet your building and budgetary needs.
