A wholesaler of activewear in Chicago and the Midwest, Cotton Connection began in 1980 in the north side of Chicago and quickly expanded. Now the company sells to independent retailers, as well as screen printers and embroiderers. As distributor of Fruit of the Loom, Gildan and Jerzees brands, the company looks to maintain its mission of providing the best quality and the best selection of name brand products at the wholesale level with outstanding service and value. It does so by offering items as low as $0.50 to $12 wholesale.
Brand Name and Quality Cotton Apparel
And while Cotton Connection has attracted a customer base because of its low priced, high quality brand name products, it also imports many non-brand label activewear, ranging from tube socks to big and tall T-shirts. “Our best sellers are always changing, as apparel changes each season.” While customers may be clamoring for hooded pull over sweatshirts in the cold winter months, polo shirts will be in high demand when golfing season begins again. “This summer V-neck T-shirts have become very popular, so much so that we’ve added eight colors to the line. Last summer it was crew neck T-shirts,” notes Ibrahim Kothawala, director of operations. It’s the constant change in trends that requires Cotton Connection to frequently change its specials.
The most accurate way to find real-time pricing is via the company website with a registered log-in. Retailers will be presented with dozen pricing and case pricing. “Case pricing is the preferred route as it lends to deeper discounts for those looking to buy inventory,” says Kothawala. “We try to remain consistent with our pricing. We can match any legitimate price, published or special bid for large quantity orders, offered by any of our competitors on any item that we carry and have in stock.”
