Ad from 1959
We are one of the oldest bicycles P & A wholesalers
in the U.S.A.
got its name from its original owner Edwin F. Merry. He opened his business
in 1906 after the big earthquake. Back then we were selling automobile
parts and motorcycle parts as well. In 1936 the Merry Co. merged with
the Bean Son Co, another bicycle wholesaler to form the Merry-Bean Company.
The onset of WWII caused a drastic slowdown of bicycle production. In
1942 the corporation was dissolved. Paul Porter, the company's manager
(and who started out with the company as bike messenger/delivery person)
became the sole owner of the bicycle parts division. He renamed it The
Merry Sales Co.
