Barry Margolis,


Cooper-Booth Wholesale Company has been in the wholesale distribution business since 1865 when the Booth Tobacco Company was incorporated in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The company continued to grow with the acquisition of Cooper Tobacco and a number of other distributors over the years. Family owned and operated for three generations, our longevity has been made possible by providing our customers with the best service and value available. Today, CBW is a full-line, full-service wholesale distributor serving retailers in the Mid-Atlantic region, and is recognized as one of the Top 20 leading convenience store wholesalers in the country.
