Hot-button issue: Port Byron business selected as new Walmart supplier

Two years ago, Winky&Dutchy Inc., brought its business to central New York, moving much of the company to the village of Port Byron Last month, Winky&Dutch CEO Alice Globus visited Walmart headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas, to pitch her products during the retail conglomerate's 5th Annual Open Call Founded in 1987, Winky&Dutch started in a machine shop in New York City, where Alice's father, engineer Ronald Globus, had begun experimenting with photography, cameras and lenses.

Alice said she believed Walmart buyers were impressed with their new technology as the company brought in its compliance department to make sure the product worked When it was clear that the buttons were machine washable, Winky&Dutch was asked to be a new Walmart supplier Currently, Alice said Winky&Dutch is finalizing the paperwork to begin selling packs of buttons and charms at Walmart next spring.

According to Alice, Walmart restocks their shelves once a week, and with an agreement to stock at least 3,000 stores and Walmart.com, Winky&Dutch will be plenty busy building up inventory to meet demand. . Source
