Spruce Linen Supply is your local source for textile rental service. Started in Bloomington, Minnesota in 1965 by Dick and Carol Jeane Russell, we supply Towels, Linen, Mats, Industrial and Restroom supplies throughout the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
Founded by Dick Russell, his background in the Linen industry started in the 1940’s as a relief driver during summer breaks from the University of Minnesota. Later, he became a Route Representative in St. Cloud, Minnesota and then a Salesman across the country. Carol Jeane spent her summers learning the administrative side of the industry. Her father, Dale Bigham, was instrumental in founding the industry. He delivered some of the very first continuous cloth towels, using a horse and buggy in Minneapolis, Minnesota in the 1920's. All together, these founding members have contributed over 200 years of service to building the textile rental industry.
Today, Spruce Company is lead by the next generation; Michael Russell and Gale (Russell) Gust. Loyal and long term employee’s make this company family through and through. Proudly, we still serve our very first customer from 1965 plus many more locally owned and operated businesses in the metropolitan area. Some are landmarks of our proud cities, others your neighborhood pizza joint. All impressive, all hardworking, all family. This is why . . .
