Offering everything from auto accessories and convenience store style items to key chains, knives and other novelties, Jacob’s Paradise is one wholesaler that has all bases covered. The company was started in 1996 by Luis Arce, who had previously spent time working for other importers. “I got tired of all the misinformation given to customers, so I started to go on my own,” says Arce. Customer service and satisfaction are of major importance at Jacob’s Paradise, according to Arce. He prides himself on being straightforward, and never giving out any misleading information. “If I can do something, I’ll tell you I can,” he says, “But if I can’t, I’ll tell you that too, even if it means I lose a sale because of it.”
A glance at the company’s website, www.jacobsparadise.com, offers retailers a wide array of great products. According to Arce, it’s all about keeping in touch with what the customer base wants, and staying on top of the market. Naturally, a big part is good old business sense and instinct.
One of the top selling items currently is the safe can. This is a novelty item used to store jewelry and other valuables. Taking everyday household items like dog food cans, deodorant cans and coffee cans, the folks at Jacob’s Paradise convert them, and place tiny safes inside. The safe cans have a wholesale price ranging from $3.95 to $23.95, and a suggested retail price from $7 to $50. Minimum order requirement is three of any particular style.
Safe cans are just one of many items available on the company’s easy to navigate website. Arce plans to add as many as 100 new products to the line in the next few weeks alone.
