Our Company History.

Our focus is on building an efficient fulfillment service, while offering best-in-class service at affordable prices.

In 1973, Elie Antar and his brothers Morris and Isaac, opened the first Valu-Plus (originally Value Stores) location in Philadelphia. It was one of the first discount variety stores in downtown Philadelphia. The store had lines down and around the block for their opening week of business until the shelves were clear. The Antar brothers knew they had the right formula. In 1987, Valu-Plus began importing products from abroad. Over the next three decades, Valu-Plus grew into a regional chain, from stores all over Philadelphia, to New Jersey and Maryland. It served the urban community with affordable, quality products until 2011 when it was sold.

Unity Street was the primary hub for importing and retail distribution.

The Warehouse on 1501 Unity Street served as the main distribution center for the retail chain and its B2B wholesale division, where we processed over 2,500 tractor-trailer loads per year. In 2015, the warehouse was reactivated as a wholesale distribution and importing center.

Shipmate Fulfillment begins offering fulfillment and warehousing solutions to the public.

Shipmate Fulfillment is the next generation of the Antar family tradition with our  core focus on what we do best: fulfillment & distribution. We have the experience and capability to handle your products in an efficient & cost effective way. Our warehouse team is trained in dealing with any type of product.
