Welcome to Mac & Mac
We are a Minneapolis-based manufacturer’s representative agency specializing in the developing private brand home products for big-box retailers
Work Ethic & Relationships
At Mac & Mac, we treat our manufacturer’s business like it’s our own business. We go the extra mile to make sure we exceed our manufacturers’ and retailers’ expectations. Our success is a result of building long-term relationships with our manufacturer partners and driving strong omnichannel performance.
We have a reputation for delivering well-thought-out, on-time solutions. Our retailers look to us not only as suppliers but as problem solvers. With our vast experience, Mac & Mac can efficiently collaborate with both manufacturers and retailers to help effectively navigate through complex product development processes and down-stream supply chain and service challenges.
With nearly 70 years of collective experience across many year-round and seasonal product categories, our dedicated team has the background to expertly guide our clients and help them build a large, profitable, and sustainable business.
Products & Services
For over 30 years, Mac & Mac has proudly represented a wide range of home product manufacturers and maintained a long track record of creating, selling, and sustaining product lines for their key retailers.
We specialize in the development of private brand merchandise with each retailer and work in tandem with their suppliers through the entire product development and sales cycle.
What We Do
We become a true partner with our suppliers to assist in the development of new product catered to each retailer, gain store-level and eCommerce placement, and help navigate each supplier through the supply chain and logistics processes.
We utilize the full resources of our team members to manage and build our manufacturer’s business with each retailer.
To ensure on-time container deliveries, we work in conjunction with our suppliers’ logistic teams and each retailer’s receiving department to track and manage each shipment.
Each retailer has its own unique processes and challenges. Our job in working with our suppliers is to help streamline these processes to ensure a positive result.
The Mac & Mac team jumped in right away and worked hard to learn about our business, capabilities, and competitive strengths. Mac & Mac quickly became an extension of our team and were able to represent Blu Dot with confidence and conviction. The Mac & Mac team was always super collaborative and acted like owners of our business – especially when we were facing a challenging situation with a tough customer. Mac & Mac helped Blu Dot get started with numerous retailers over the years, but more importantly, they built strong and productive relationships with the cross-functional teams at our key retailers.
~Senior Vice President, Blu Dot
Mac & Mac is a very professional team that always takes a proactive stance in all aspects of my business from start to finish. They would “live and breathe” our brands which allowed us to consider them as an extension of our staff and a valuable asset to our company goals.
~Executive Vice President, General Foam Plastics/Beckett Corp.
Mac & Mac associates were problem-solving partners. When we ran short on photography resources they quickly jumped in and asked the vendor if they could provide lifestyle imagery that would set their product apart and increase conversion on the website. When I ran short on open to buy they convinced the manufacturer to store the desired item domestically so we could drop ship the item to the guest, and gain market share in the critical gazebo category.

Mac and Mac was a key partner in building and launching fashion brands within our online business.
