Sparr Building and Farm Supply was recently featured in an article by American Cattlemen.
From the article:
Mr. and Mrs. Elbert Griggs opened Sparr Building and Farm Supply with a vision to provide a quality product and willingness to treat each customer like family. The store originally had gas pumps and groceries along with general hardware and lumber merchandise. In 1981, the Howard family purchased the business from their aunt and uncle, the Griggs
As the community grew from an agricultural to a semi-rural residential area, the customer base steadily increased. However, the family-oriented environment continued to be an important component to operating the store. Customers found it uplifting to walk in the store and be welcomed by their name from a sales clerk. Continued success allowed Sparr Building and Farm Supply to expand and build a larger store in 1990. It is located directly across from the original building.
Today brothers Sam and Paul Howard actively own and operate the business. By dedicating themselves to the business and working hard to keep the family values and traditions a part of the everyday operations, they have experienced tremendous growth.
There are statewide delivery services available and Sparr can ship anywhere in the United States, South America and the Caribbean.Sparr Building & Farm Supply recognizes that without the loyal customers from the communities they are so proud to be a part of, their success and continued growth would not be possible. With three locations in Central Florida — Sparr, Wildwood, and Williston — Sparr Building and Farm Supply offers customers a variety of solutions and convenient services. They are proud distributors of Bekaert fencing products.
