Mr. Checkout is a national association of independent wagon-jobbers and full-line distributors. We distribute product to approximately 35,000 independent stores around the country and are always seeking the next hot new product. If you have a product, we want to hear from you!
We have a lot to be thankful for when it comes to the help retailers render us. They go out to source products and sell it at a markup price. The stress and time it would otherwise take us to get this product is not up to the little markup on these products. Thus, we should always try to find ways of making the retail centers better and more efficient and that is what an informative and analytical industry magazine, the Independent Retailer, takes the industry on its editorial shoulders and researches trends and better ways of doing business.

More, your spending is controlled and you can save to get other essentials. For instance, if you want to sell consumables cheaper than its general price in the market, you have to be informed of a better supply chain; you have to be aware of how to connect with the manufacturer to see how an arrangement can work to benefit you both; and you have to get a better and more efficient transportation route and arrangement to your store.
