About Us
Merritt Wholesale Distributors has been supplying the region with candy, tobacco, beverages and restaurant supplies since 1927. The company has been owned and operated by Sam Stahakis Jr, and his family since 1974.

In 2010, Merritt moved into the janitorial and cleaning supply business with a team of salesmen in the field to assess and take care of customer needs. David Paul, Sales Manager, heads up a team that includes Bob Triffett, Trey Pathman and Don Little. The group offers more than 100 years' combined sales and customer service experience.

Our added inventory includes bulk and bag-in-the-box soaps, hand sanitizers, restroom and floor cleaners, degreasers, disinfectants, glass cleaners, floor strippers and waxes, as well as the brooms, mops, buckets, and dispensers needed in every type of retail, professional, and service business.

Owner Sam Stathakis says "This allows us to service just about every type of business located in our sales area. We have had great success meeting the needs of our current retail customers and want to emphasize that we will continue selling the products that have been our backbone for the last 80 years. The janitorial and cleaning products are a tremendous expansion to an already successful inventory."

Another new addition to our product line is Register Tape. We carry a full line of all types of register tape - thermal paper, 2 ply, single ply, and more.

Merritt also has the ability to supply bottled spring water to customers featuring their business or personal logo on the label at a minimal price. The water will sport the label designed by the business at no set-up charge.

Merritt's sales and delivery staff covers customers in a 60-mile radius of Hot Springs National Park. During the past 80-plus years we have delivered Hershey Mars, Nestle, Wrigley and other confectionery products as well as a full line of tobacco items which includes all major brands of cigar and cigarette products to generations of locals and visitors. We are also a major supplier of paper and Styrofoam products to restaurants, schools and all type of retail customers.

Other product lines include a full line of Gatorade, Campbells, V8, Bluebird, Bug Juice, Del Monte juices, and more.
