The directory is also emailed to WVWA members who attend our annual Mid-Atlantic Legislative Conference. Your inclusion in the WVWA Member Directory is essential and beneficial to your company and clientele!


Merchants Distributors, Inc.

Hickory, NC, USA

In 1931, two sons of Lebanese immigrants, Alex and Lee George, started MDI in Hickory, North Carolina. In their eyes everyone should have the opportunity for a better life.

Our 90-year history is an interesting story of sacrifice, growth, and success. What began as a small family business, as one local newspaper described it, ?With little more than a bag of peanuts, an apple, and a stick of candy" is now one of the largest grocery wholesale companies on the East Coast.

Ninety years later the George family and MDI remain anchored to their values. Our optimism and entrepreneurial spirit has kept us strong during some of America?s toughest times. In fact, adversity has only made us stronger.

In July of 1982, MGC consolidated with Peoples Grocery from Orange and moved into the new warehouse.. Even though we were experiencing all of the trials of moving into a new location, our commitment to our customers never changed. In fact, we didn’t miss a single day of shipping product to all of our locations. Throughout this process, we invested heavily into our technology that would make our warehouse more efficient and our customer experience effortless.

Our current property has a warehouse of over 150,000 square feet of product which includes a 30,000 square foot freezer. We are large enough to supply all your business needs, but small enough to always be here for you!

Ohserase Manufacturing, LLC

Hogansburg, Bombay, NY, USA

Tobacco has been a Mohawk tradition for hundreds of years. Tobacco has been used by the Mohawks in medicine, as currency, and in ceremonial rituals. Native American tribes throughout North America would incinerate or smoke the tobacco leaves during religious and other ceremonies. They believed they were sending signals and prayers to the spiritual world. Tobacco was imperative for Native Americans and was the first cash crop grown by the settlers of the first American colony in Jamestown, Virginia.

Ohserase Manufacturing, LLC has drawn on the values of its Native American heritage and the Mohawk's love of nature, strength of spirit, and 400-year old history with tobacco to become a large family-owned tobacco Manufacturer. The Mohawk tradition of unity and culture has been embraced by the Tarbell family for generations. Theresa "Bear", matriarch of the Tarbell family, started her own business, The Bear's Den Trading Post, on the Mohawk reservation with two gas pumps and a small Native gift shop in 1953. Through her teachings and strong work ethic, the Tarbell family has continued to push forward, making dynamic decisions and venturing into new markets.

After venturing into the tobacco market, the Tarbell family soon became one of the largest distributors of Native-made cigarettes on the Mohawk reservation and in New York State. After refining the distribution process for many years, the family realized that there was a void in the cigarette market for a high-quality, great tasting cigarette that people can afford to enjoy.

Ohserase Manufacturing , LLC was formed to fill this void. Expanding across the United states and into other countries, we have become the largest manufacturer of Native-made, all- natural cigarettes in the world, featuring our flagship brand-Signal.
