Parcheesi
and Scrabble. It was based in Bay Shore, New York. It dates back to 1867[1] when it was founded as E. G. Selchow & Co.

A jobber is a merchant — e.g., (i) a wholesaler or (ii) reseller or (iii) independent distributor operating on consignment — who takes goods in quantity from manufacturers or importers and sells or resells or distributes them to retail chains and syndicates, particularly supermarkets, department stores, drug chains, and the like.
