With over 65% of its business consisting of flea marketers, Barton’s Discounts is the go-to wholesale liquidation company for any products a vendor needs. Barry Barton sold his 20-year wholesale business and retired before his son went to high school. He always says he was one of the first casualties of the Computer Age. His son, Joe Barton, got tired of working for others and approached his dad with the idea of “starting up the old business.” With over 20 years of experience, this company has accomplished a lot in such a short time. “We have garnered 500 plus customers within about 30 months,” said Barry Barton, Senior Advisor. “This is very hard to do, especially when there are so many companies out there trying to do the same thing. It is all about treating the people right.”
The resurrected company has kept the one idea that made it successful for twenty-plus years. “We do not touch the pallets,” said Joe Barton, owner. Barry Barton stated that 20 years ago almost every warehouse operation “cherry-picked.” That meant taking the best one or two items from a pallet. Now “cherry-picking” has come to mean taking all the good items. “Here at Barton’s Discounts we say: ‘those guys Plunder The Pallets.'”
Barton’s Discounts sells by the pallet. Every imaginable item comes through the 20,000 square foot warehouse. They specialize in household items, kitchen supplies, bedding, toys, ride-on cars and nursery items coming from national retailers and are available most weeks. A hook-up with a national drug store chain provides select customers with brand new cosmetics at a percentage of wholesale cost. Nearly every item seen in a drug store has come through their warehouse.
The company does not hold auctions and they have no upcharges. They prefer appointments, especially for new customers, so they can get acquainted with the owners and warehouse. Barton’s has shipped as far as California, but they concentrate on Illinois, Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky. Most out-of-state customers buy 4 pallets or a truckload. Barton’s arranges shipping, but also encourages their customers to do the same.
