Moon Distributing has been family owned and operated since the repeal of prohibition in Arkansas. Moon Distributing opened its doors in March of 1935 with a 5600 square foot facility under our founder Harry L. Hastings Sr. Out of the 20+ permits issued in 1935 the Hastings family is the only original permit holder left in the state of Arkansas.
In May 1955 a partnership was entered into with Central Distributors, a competing wholesale liquor company. The family later purchased the remainder of the partnership in 1974. Later in September 1988 Central Distributors grew even more with the purchase of the McKesson Wine & Spirits Wholesale Company.
The businesses have continued to grow and establish a reputation for carrying the industry’s leading brands and are two of the major wholesale houses in the state of Arkansas. Moon and Central distribute in all wet areas of the state. Our state of the art facility encompasses 11 acres and over 200,000 square feet of office and warehouse space. Moon and Central Distributors employ over 175 including the 4th generation of the Hastings family.
