I would like to open a store selling bent can goods, frozen goods, and health and beauty aids. Where can I find a salvage supplier in South East Pennsylvania?

RE: Salvage Grocery Supplier
I'm originally from Alabama, and a friend of mine owns a salvage grocery store there. They get their groceries from a Super Value warehouse near them. I'm not sure who your major food storage warehouse is in PA, but I'm sure if you do some checking around you could find a warehouse. I know they would like to make some kind of money off items that can't be shipped to the regular grocers. Hope this helps.
I can supply what we call a banana box of frozen and cooler product, except you know exactly what is in it. There are usually about 40 or so different items ranging from 5 or 6 of an item up to 15 or 16 of an item. We specialize in helping the small store by selling our loads in the 3 to 4 pallet range versus buying a truck load of product. Our product is mostly in date (if not it is stated) and is never damaged. You may also want to check out RE Sales Solutions out of St Louis. We have sold to them in the past and they are good with small mixed loads of frozen items as well. (01/25/2011)
