In order to truly understand A J Sales, one must first take a closer look at the company’s founder, Allen Bass. Mr. Bass has been in business for nearly forty years. Having decided to become an entrepreneur at an early age, he began his first A J Sales location on Summit Street in McComb, MS. Allen realized he had discovered his calling. He quickly expanded to a second location out of Amite, LA. where he also ran a very lucrative cardboard recycling operation.
With his success continuing to grow at an exponential rate, Mr. Bass found himself expanding, yet again, to even more locations. A J Sales grew to become a must-visit location when people discussed where to shop for an excellent deal and even better service. As an entrepreneur, Allen strives to keep a clear work ethic and is always willing to help his customers to the best of his ability without breaking his fair trade ethics. This attitude is a refreshing change to many locations that feed a customer nothing but fabricated kindness. Allen reveled in many years of success, steadily growing his number of A J Sales business locations with the size of his cardboard operation. At the peak of his success, Mr. Bass had four A J Sales locations spread out between Mississippi and Louisiana, with his cardboard operation based at his main store located in Amite, LA.
With anyone, life tends to happen. After suffering a light stroke, Allen ( founder of A J Sales ) couldn’t keep the pace he had set and was forced to close every location except his hwy 51 location in McComb, MS. After much prayer and hard work, Mr. Bass moved his cardboard operation to his surviving location and began the long road to recovery.
