Core-Mark is one of the largest broad-line, full-service marketers and distributors of packaged consumer products in North America. Founded in 1888, Core-Mark provides distribution and logistics services as well as marketing programs to over 24,000 retail locations across the United States and Canada through its 26 distribution centers. Core-Mark services traditional convenience retailers, grocers, mass merchandisers, drug, liquor and specialty stores, and other stores that carry consumer packaged goods.

SmartStock® is a guaranteed, full-service marketing program that offers qualified Core-Mark customers the key benefits of top category management, quality racks, and weekly in-store merchandising services.

One of Core-Mark’s most successful programs, SmartStock, provides retailers with the opportunity to increase sales at higher margins. By focusing on sets typically handled by a DSD, SmartStock eliminates the need for multiple vendors, saving our customers resources, money, and time.

SmartStock merchandisers are program experts, assigned to each SmartStock customer to merchandise their store on a weekly basis. These SmartStock Specialists manage each shelf for each set, ordering, rotating, pricing and writing credits, thereby assisting the retailer in labor and merchandising efforts while driving store sales and profits.

At Core-Mark, we know that each of our customers is different and their path to success can lead in many different directions. So, whether a store is part of a national chain or a Mom & Pop, Core-Mark offers each of its customer valuable, customized solutions and services design to help them meet their unique and shared business goals.

Core-Mark combines competitive pricing, on-time deliveries, innovative marketing programs and technology solutions so that our customers can focus on growing their business.
