Family Business Revolutionizing Independent Retail Distribution Industry

Since 1989 Mr. Checkout Distributors, Inc. have been servicing independent retailers, convenience stores and grocers through a group of wagon jobbers (small distributors), merchandisers and wholesale-to-distributor warehouse companies. We are not a franchise. Each route distributor is independent (has complete autonomy) and has full control over his or her own business and full control over all marketing methods.
Mr. Checkout Distributors was founded by Bob Goldstein in 1989 to distribute new products to small retailers in Boston Massachusetts and surrounding suburbs. Since then Mr. Checkout has grown into the largest association of independent distributors in the country. Since Bob’s son Joel Goldstein purchased the business in Q1 2015, he has developed several revolutionary new ways to bring hot new products to these jobbers around the country.

Passing the baton from one generation to another, Mr. Checkout distributors (a family run corporation) was sold to Bob Goldstein’s youngest son Joel Goldstein January 1st 2015. Since Joel Goldstein took control of Mr. Checkout’s operations he has streamlined the distributor introduction system making it easier than every for a hot new product to reach the 1,200 distributors in the Mr. Checkout network. Joel Goldstein mentioned, “With the assistance of a new team we have been able to completely deconstruct, analyze and revolutionize the processes that frequently hindered the success of new products from reaching and explaining the product to the independent distributors within our network.”

Some new systems that were put in place are:

Complete Assisted Product Introductions: The Mr. Checkout team members call 1,200 distributors 2-3 times per week introducing distributors to new products; following up with emails; and listening for feedback from distributors.

Interactive Distributor Directory: Comprised of over 1,200 distributors spread across the United States, Canada, Nova Scotia, Puerto Rico & the Bahamas, Mr. Checkout has built an interactive directory allowing suppliers to better search and research distributors.

In-Depth Education Portal: Independent retail distribution is significantly different from any other category. Mr. Checkout developed an in-depth education section of their website dedicated to sharing feedback directly from distributors as well as the latest trends that are occurring in small retailers across the country.

Re-Developed Blitz Program: The famous Mr. Checkout Blitz that launched such brands as 5 hour energy and BLU eCigerettes has been completely re-developed. Now suppliers can split test point of sale displays, retail price and in-store placement of displays.

Due to the revolutionary changes made to Mr. Checkout system, the amount of products represented by Mr. Checkout has more than tripled during the first quarter of 2015. This growth due to the excitement around the new systems have been met with enthusiasm by previously frustrated suppliers. Now with a tried and true system to introduce new products to independent retail distributors, Mr. Checkout’s supplier introductions are quickly becoming the standard avenue when launching a new retail product.
