January 1956


L&R Distributors opens its doors for business. Founded by the Lucas family its mission, to service the NYC market as a “Rack Jobber” of General Merchandise and Hair Appliances. L&R started out modestly by operating out of a small store-front operation and consistently grew by “pounding” the streets of NYC. Its heritage was and remains to service the customer correctly… As Mike Lucas Sr. would always say, “The customer comes first.”
