City Plumbing is a family owned business started in 1950 by Joseph Shanker. Until just recently Joe was behind the city counter waiting on customers. Now retired, Joe at the age of 92, still visits the store from time to time and enjoys catching up with long time customers.
In 1985 Joe's son, Scott joined City Plumbing. Growing up around the store, Scott spent many summers throughout his school years learning his father's business. After a short time practicing law, Scott decided that his heart was in the plumbing supply business. After Joe retired, Scott took over and now enjoys running City Plumbing and helping customers every day.
Al Hopson joined the City Plumbing Supply team recently. Al has worked as a plumber in the field and brings extensive knowledge to City Plumbing.
Wendy Shanker runs the accounting department. But don’t be surprised to see Wendy out front at the counter when she is needed.
We at “City” are proud to be in our 69th year of business. It is not a rarity for us to have served three generations of customers. We wouldn’t be around for so long without our terrific customers and we thank them all.
