Harbor Wholesale Grocery Acquires Paul Jackson Wholesale

Seeking to expand West Coast grocery store, c-store distribution

TUMWATER, Wash. -- Harbor Wholesale Grocery Inc. recently announced its acquisition of all the assets of Paul Jackson Wholesale, an independent grocery and convenience distributor in the state of Oregon.

The company has been trying to expand distribution into California, it said, and the acquisition of Roseburg, Ore.-based Paul Jackson Wholesale brings us one step closer to the accomplishment of that goal, it said.

The acquisition increases the size of Harbor Wholesale Grocery's distribution network and increases its ability to [image-nocss] distribute efficiently, the company said.

As with the recent acquisitions of Bur-Bee Wholesale of Walla Walla, Wash., and Howard's Meats of Portland, Ore., Paul Jackson Wholesale will be operated under the Harbor Wholesale Grocery name.

Tumwater, Wash.-based Harbor Wholesale Grocery is a family-owned and -operated full-service grocery distribution business that has operated in the Pacific Northwest for the past 84 years. It now distributes product in Washington, Oregon, Idaho and select regions of California and Alaska.
