Wheatbelt is a stockholder-owned distributor, that specializes in the Retail Farm and Home Market. We work primarily with drop ship programs direct to the retailer. Our programs are geared to the independent retailer who has his special niche within the ag-area, in addition to those departments which make up a complete retail source for hardware, lawn and garden, pet supplies, toys, automotive, clothing and do-it-yourself supplies. We supplement these drop ship programs with redistribution centers and various stock items on a continuous basis out of our warehouse.  Being a stockholder-owned company, we provide these programs at the most competitive pricing available.  We want you to be the profit center.

 

Our method of supplying these programs and products to you, are through three buying shows a year.  At these shows you have the opportunity to purchase at special pricing with the savings passed through to you.  You have the ability to place orders direct with the manufacturer at anytime during the year. In turn we are your single credit source for vendors.  We pay the vendor and collect from you on a bi-monthly statement to simplify your accounting.  Please see the fee schedule for costs associated with membership.  If you still have interest in joining the group, hit the contact us tab at the top of the page and e-mail us or call us at the number provided.
