Origins:

We are one of the oldest bicycles parts and accessory wholesalers in the U.S.A.

The company got its name from its original owner Edwin F. Merry. He opened his business in San Francisco right after the Great Earthquake of 1906. 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.
