Re: southern california hanes beefy t-shirts wholesale?

I currently buy my Hanes Beefy-Ts from SS Activewear. I love SS Activewear -- their site is easy to use, great customer service, fairly quick shipping. However, I would love to do what Dennis does and that is pick up my shirts from a local supplier. I don't really care to pay the shipping fees (who does?).

Does anyone know of a supplier in Southern California that carries Hanes Beefy-Ts that allows for local pickup?

I just called and verified that I could pickup (yes).

However, I checked out their prices for Hanes Beefy-Ts and it says starting at $3.92. I am assuming $3.92 is their wholesale price. My assumption is based on the fact that the prices for Hanes Beefy-Ts were basically double the $3.92 price. I believe I am shown this higher price because the system sees I am not logged in and assumes I have no wholesale benefits. Should I log in, I would see the prices starting at $3.92. Sound right? If so, $3.92 is way too expensive, it defeats the purpose of picking them up myself.

If I am wrong about the above and their prices are similar to SS then I thank you. I thank you anyway for going to the trouble of posting them.

I've been using Staton Wholesale exclusively because of pricing, easy to place website orders, EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE. Plus I really save on shipping by shopping local only.

No minimums. Case pricing if placing orders via internet. Whites always at great wholesale price. Pickup is fine in Fullerton. I get "next day" because I'm local.

I was missing a box of 48 shirts and they delivered by courier service yesterday (after I asked them to because they did goof). Could not wait a day.

ALPHA...only offers "case pricing" if you buy by the "case". I just called them because they bombard me with sales flyers (2 to 3 per week).

TSC Apparel also local. Website hard to shop at unless you know what you need (pull down menus). No minimums...pickup okay. I think they have cash discount on pickups.

Americana Sportswear, first order must be $100. Pickup okay. Pain to open account with.

Re: southern california hanes beefy t-shirts wholesale?

FYI...my cost is about 16-centsextra per shirt when I factor in shipping from Staton Wholesale. Yes, I did the math with the last big order. I carry inventory and try to make my order cost-effective based on weekly specials and what I need.

I like that in a bind I can go to Downtown LA or to wholesalers for in-person pickup. But when calculating my time and what it's worth...better to pay for local shipping.

Jason, get on Staton's email list. You have to go to website to register.
Or I just check every Monday. Price change happened to me too...that's why I stock up whenever I can. Susan

I know a Staton warehouse is in fullerton, not sure where that is in relation to you.

www.statonwholesale.com. I recently purchased my black shirts for $2.69, it was a sale I believe, but now they are $2.39, I just checked, DAMN.

Thanks for the tip Susan. I did my first order over the internet, went really smooth and they just called me today to see if everything went ok. Good to know their sales are weekly.

Did the regional sales director call you? I was in shock to get this followup call.

I don't know if it was the regional sales director or not, I just remember her telling me that she was my contact in case I needed anything in the future. They even said if I find cheaper shirts anywhere they can try to price match.
