Our Warehouse and Fulfillment History

Founded in 1935 in St. Paul, Minnesota, we have been distributing merchandise for over 80 years to the retail trade. Initially as Scholls Inc., we worked as a wholesale company delivering a variety of goods directly to our customer’s door. After 50 successful years of servicing the mass, grocery and department stores, due to changing demands, we evolved into Distribution Alternatives a 3rd Party Logistic Company. As a full service 3PL we contract with over 60 companies supplying warehousing and fulfillment services, and managing their distribution strategies using our 80 years of supply chain experience.

We have developed a strong, flexible, “can do” attitude drawn from our small, family owned culture, however we are still large enough to tap industry discounts. Our commitment to flexibility is one of the things that will separate us from our competition.

Even though we have expanded into other parts of the country, we are still proud of our Minnesota heritage, operating our business with strong and honest mid-western values.
