About Barton’s Discounts

Barton’s Discounts began with one question. What happens when an item is returned from Big Box retailers and eCommerce websites? Founders Joe (John) Barton and Dallas Spaulding began researching the process of purchasing these items for the purpose of reselling. Once they secured a source for customer returned merchandise, they put together a business plan and approached the small business association for a $5,000 loan. From there, the two hit the ground running. They started with just a few storage units and an idea. They now occupy a 150,000 sqft warehouse in Indianapolis with 20 employees.


Barton’s Discounts now partners with some of the largest retailers and manufacturers to help liquidate their customer returned and excess inventory. This offers recovery for product that was otherwise thought to have no value. They then resell these products through the secondary market using multiple sales channels. Barton’s prides themselves on making the previously cumbersome liquidation process fast and efficient.
