Weinstein Kitchen and Bath: Progress in Action

Marple Friends & Neighbors, October 2022

If you have visited the Weinstein Kitchen and Bath showroom in Broomall, it’s no surprise that their motto is Progress in Action. From the state-of-the-art products to educated sales staff, it’s obvious that they are committed to keeping up with advancing technology and providing their customers with the industry’s best brands.

Weinstein’s newest Broomall location opened in 2018 and the showroom is a premier destination for customers looking to design a new bath or kitchen, or remodel an existing space. Not only do they offer the latest styles and innovations, their goal is to be a partner with their customer throughout their design or remodel.

Although Weinstein originally opened its first Broomall location in 2008, the company’s humble beginnings actually began 100 years ago. Brothers Jack and Joe Weinstein first opened up a small hardware store in West Philadelphia in 1922. For thirty years they ran Weinstein Supply Company there, specializing in plumbing and heating. Eventually the company grew in size and their sons Nat and Howard joined the family business. By the late 1960s they opened up two more locations. From 1990-1999 they continued to expand, adding dozens of branches in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland.

In 1990, the Weinstein Supply Company teamed up with Hajoca Corporation, a family owned business that began in Philadelphia and has been a nationwide supplier of plumbing, heating and industrial supplies since 1858. By partnering with Hajoca, Weinstein was able to use their business model, which is to have each location run by its own manager as a semi-independent business. That means although they have the advantages of a national distributor, they can give a more personal feel to their customers.

John Hough has been the manager of Weinstein Supply in Broomall since 2008. He started as a salesman back in 1999 when the branch was located in Newtown Square and then became the branch manager when the location moved to Broomall’s industrial park. In 2018, Weinstein Kitchen and Bath’s showroom stayed in the industrial park, but moved across the street to a much larger location. John’s responsibilities include managing the employees, including the sales team, the warehouse team, the delivery drivers and the showroom team. He also develops long-term strategies for the Broomall branch. “My family has been here in Broomall for the past 21 years,”John explained. “So to manage this branch here in Marple township and be able to give back and support local schools and organizations is very rewarding.”

John and his team at Weinstein Supply Broomall are ready to help do-it yourself homeowners as well as contractors with all of their plumbing and heating needs. 

“We accommodate plumbing supply needs for plumbing and commercial contractors, with a large selection of fittings, pipes, valves and fixtures,” explained John. “Our team understands that contractors adhere to strict deadlines and need to get the necessary materials and solutions on time, so we work closely with them to ensure their customers receive the right product, on the right schedule at the right price.”

Walk into the showroom and you’ll likely be greeted by showroom consultant Ricky Collings, a Broomall native and Marple Newtown High School grad who has the knowledge and expertise to help you with your project.  Ricky has been with Weinstein since 2019 when he was a student at Widener University. He started off working in the warehouse to make extra money and after graduating from WIdener with a degree in Management in Marketing he became a salesman for the company. 

Ricky said what sets Weinstein apart from the big box stores is that they are really able to educate the customer on the various products. “We’re knowledgeable about our products and really take the time to explain and educate our customers on what we are selling,” said Ricky. “Although we are a large corporation, we are more specialized, which gives us that mom and pop feel.”
