History: In 1955, Margaret Dickey, Steve’s mother started a formal clothing store in Sullivan, Mo., along with her sister-in-law, Letha Bub and that was the beginning of their family’s retail business legacy. In 1997, Steve Dickey opened their family’s first farm and home store in Union, Mo., known as the Dickey Bub Farm & Home store. Today, they own stores in four different communities with 75 employees, including three generations of the Dickey family. They also have an extensive online business.

Products and Services: The Dickey Bub Farm & Home stores carry a little bit of everything, according to Rolla, Mo., store manager, Pat Meyer.

“We offer lawn and garden products, including fertilizer, grass seed and pesticides. We have plumbing supplies, hardware and electrical items. We sell paint and do custom paint mixing and matching. We also offer a full service pet center with food, toys and treats for pets as well as automotive supplies, heating and grilling items and giftware. We sell power equipment like Stihl products, Gravely and Spartan mowers and we have a mechanic on staff to meet any sort of repair needs for the equipment we sell. Half of each of our stores is also clothing, work clothing like Carhartt and Dickie’s as well as ladies’ fashionable clothing.”

Pat grew up in nearby Belle, Mo., so this was his home shopping area as a young person. He was eager to be able to move back to his home area recently.

“I’ve been with the company for 10 years now and I’ve worked at all of the other stores. Our Rolla store just celebrated our one-year anniversary and we are excited to be part of the Rolla community. I’ve met a lot of great people working for Dickey Bub and look forward to a bright future here in Rolla.”
