Anderson’s success in connecting your brand to America’s shoppers is built on almost a century of experience in servicing retail accounts. Founded in 1917 in Florence, Alabama, Anderson started as a small newsstand in a makeshift shed. Within a year, the company began providing merchandising services to retail accounts in its hometown. By the 1920s, the work had spread across the region and Anderson established itself as only the second wholesale distributor in the Southeast.
From a simple newsstand, we’ve expanded to more than 5,000 associates and six state-of-the-art distribution centers strategically located to help you reach customers quickly anywhere in the nation.
