Source and Sell was founded in 1997 by Robert Galombik. Robert has a long history in Discount Variety Retail. He was one of the founders of the GO-LO chain and The Reject Shop. After exiting from retail, with all his knowledge of factories and all his experience of trading in China, he started importing. Soon he had restablished a reputation for developing good value, current on trend product. Source and Sell was a valued partner to its retail customers.
In 2012, Source and Sell was acquired by Pro-Pac Packaging.It was then that the growth took off. With the benefit of financial resources as well as the support of a large company structure, Source and Sell's only limitation was the product we could bring to market. Today, Source and Sell is a highly valued partner for our retail customers.
