We’re more than just ‘A Press’
Anderson Press Incorporated is a diverse company offering consumer goods including books and many other products. Our publishing focus is on sports, historic events, and collecting – primarily numismatic (that’s a fancy word for coins). Outside of books, we’ve entered into the fashion and apparel market with a high end line of tutus. Finally, we produce large coolers and urban garden planters from reclaimed wood. All of this is done under some of the most recognizable brands in the industry.

All of our brands drive back to our core belief, which is to understand what our consumers want and deliver on it. This is how it all began back in 1917 in Florence, Alabama. At that time, the T.V.A. had commissioned the building of dams along the Tennessee River. Many workers desperate for work at the time traveled from far away for the opportunity of a steady job. While they were grateful for the work, they missed their hometowns. Clyde W. Anderson recognized this as an opportunity and worked with the newspapers from the worker's hometown to have their papers delivered to Florence. He then setup a newsstand made from a piano box and begin to sell newspapers.
These humble beginnings spawned many large successful businesses. The newsstand would later become a bookstore which then became a chain of bookstores which culminated in the nation’s second largest bookstore known as Books-A-Million. In addition to books, the newsstands sold various other items including fireworks. This developed into the nation’s largest fireworks distributor called TNT Fireworks. Delivering goods for the newsstands became another standalone business called Anderson Merchandisers. Today Anderson Merchandisers, a division of Anderson Media, is the entertainment category manager for some of the top retailers in the US. In total, the Anderson family of businesses has over 75 distribution centers totaling more than 3 million square feet of space.
