Western Janitorial Supply Stays Put as Downtown Grows

Going strong for 33 years, Western Janitor Supply in Paso Robles has watched the downtown transform, and plans on serving the next generation of business owners. Nestled quietly on Pine Street, between Paso Terra seafood restaurant and the future site of Hotel Cheval, WJS can be found during business hours with the door wide open and owners Karen and Linda serving thousands of supplies out of a small footprint.

Through earthquakes and recession, WJS has stood proudly serving janitorial supplies to Paso Robles businesses and has no plans on vacating their trusty downtown location.

“We celebrated 33 years, thanks to our wonderful customers, and we are going to be here for the next generation of business owners coming to our area,” Linda said.

As Hotel Cheval expands, so does Western Janitorial Supply’s value. More rooms, more supplies it would seem. But that is not all. Hotel Cheval is expanding to the east side of Pine Street, and just across 10th street is the future site of Hotel Ava — a 151-room hotel. Down the street two blocks, at 4th and Pine streets is a five-story 103-room Oxford Suites development.

Ava and Oxford are two of seven hotels in Paso Robles currently in some stage of development. That is a lot of paper towels, plungers, and other janitorial supplies that will call for action from the professional suppliers at WJS.

“It is only going to help us grow. It is going to be a good thing,” Linda said.

No, they are probably not going anywhere, any time soon.

“We just want to let everyone know we just celebrated 33 years and we plan on being around a lot longer. We are here for our local customers.”
