About Our Company

The W.L. Petrey Company was established in 1898 as a retail mercantile business.

A natural evolution of change led Petrey into an expansion of its wholesale grocery role. It is still operated by the same family and is now in its sixth generation.

The business has grown steadily, currently servicing 8 states in the Southeast and delivering to customers on a weekly basis at points 500 miles distant. Petrey operates its warehouses out of Montgomery, Birmingham and Petrey, Alabama. The company utilizes over 350,000 square feet of warehouse space in its warehouses using state-of-the-art technology to ensure the customers receive what they order, when they need it.

W.L. Petrey's primary customers are convenience stores. Supply lines include dry and frozen groceries, candy, health and beauty care, deli items, tobacco products, novelty items, beverages, supplies, etc.

While honoring our past, we are always striving to bring you innovative ideas, products, technology and services to better your company.
