We get phone calls all the time asking why we only sell our pine shavings in wholesale truckloads. The reason is simple. Pine River Bedding has always been wholesale only. It's all we know how to do.
Back in 1997, we had a dream of selling a better product to the bedding world. We felt that we could take all of our years of wood expertise and start selling a higher quality wood shaving than what was widely available on the market. We partnered with just one mill to produce a really dry and absorbent flake that was solid white pine. Our customers loved it! We stayed small for years, slowly growing our business one load of shavings at a time.
Eventually, we were taking all of that mill's production and still needed more shavings for our customers, we found another partner. A couple years after that, we grew again. We moved locations to Abingdon, VA. in 2012 and the business kept growing and growing. We added more products. The business kept growing and we needed more help. We had to move again to Martinsburg, WV in 2015 to add more staff. Now in 2017 we have added 2 more mills to better serve you.
We take a lot of pride in being a family run and family owned business for the last 20 years. It's one of the things that has made us really successful over the years. Sure, we have great products, but the customer service and attention to detail is a pride thing for us. We want to be better at it than anyone else in our business. Being able to count on your supplier matters to a retail location.
Are we perfect, no? Have we made mistakes and messed things up, yes. But at the end of the day, we have ALWAYS been fair and decent people to talk to, deal with, and trust your business to. That's pride in your business and your brand!
Everybody knows somebody that can sell them shavings off a truck at a crazy price point from time to time. Are they good shavings? Who knows? But when your back is against the wall and the chips are on the table, we will deliver a great looking product at a fair and decent price. If for some reason we don't, we have always taken our bumps on the chin and done our best to fix it the first time we discuss it.
