Original Stein Store Opened in 1946 in Shorewood, Wisconsin
Stein Gardens & Gifts has a storied history that traces back more than 65 years. In 1946, Maurice Stein opened the first Stein location in Shorewood, Wisconsin. His son, Jack Stein, took over the business and through his vision and commitment to the customer built Stein's into one of the leading independent garden centers in the country.
Today, with 16 locations throughout Wisconsin, Stein's continues to be owned and operated by the Stein family and remains focused on providing customers with superior products and great service. Each Stein store is located on approximately a five acre site with parking for 150-200 cars. Each site includes a 31,000 square foot building and a three acre sales yard for nursery stock and landscaping items. The corporate headquarters is located at 5400 South 27th Street, Milwaukee.
