How do we sell it so cheap?

We’ve been at this for 45 years! We make the biggest deals the wholesalers will offer us-the bigger the deal the lower our cost. Our overhead is low, our markup is minimum-"We Stack it Deep and Sell it Cheap!”

We get our own truck.

It’s not uncommon for one or more of the wholesalers to send a separate truck for for our weekly delivery…and one truck for the other 11 stores.

It all started in 1972...

  • Bob Frankland opened The Barrel in 1972, one of the first of 12 to be allowed in town.
  • The barrel is the only continuously owned store in Jackson since 1972.
  • The Barrel has gone from a neighborhood store to a regional destination known for it’s warehouse style pricing.

Experience matters

  • With 45 years in the business, ‘Boss-Man’ Bob knows how to make things happen and he keeps loyal employees on our team.
  • The majority of our employees have been with us for close to a decade or more.
  • Manager Kim has been in our employ since 1985 and store manager for 15 years.
  • Assistant Manager Michelle has been with us 10 years.
  • Brigetta, everyone loves Brigetta-she’s been bantering with customers for over 11 years!

Community matters

  • We participate yearly in The Foundation's Gala, the Blue Suede Dinner, Whine and Dine, and The Downtown Dog's Bone Appetit event and many other fundraisers to help give back to our community.
  • We believe in our Downtown and its community.
  • We love local and strive to support as many local businesses as we can. "You can't buy happiness but you can buy local and that's kind of the same thing."
