Pitman Creek Wholesale sells only to retailers who have a permanent business location and stock the merchandise that we sell. Retailers should have a location separate from their residence, maintain regular business hours, and be open to the public.
Pitman Creek Wholesale does not knowingly sell to individuals who operate out of their home or wish to purchase solely for their own use or for that of their friends. We want to protect the dealers who make their living selling retail sporting goods.
Those desiring to become a dealer must complete the Dealer Application and provide a copy of your State Resale Certificate prior to the processing of your first order. We also require that you send a picture the outside of your store showing your store front with your sign and a picture of the inside of your store shows the cash register. The pictures can be mailed, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org , or sent via MMS/Text Message to email@example.com. Please include your store name when sending the pictures.
