We are located in Northwest Arkansas, just minutes from the Walmart Home Office. Through our direct merchant relationships, breadth of diversified experience, and ability to navigate holistic customer needs, we have built a business with a proven track record of growth and success across our supplier family.

In January of 2015, Blue Ocean Innovative Solutions became an independent operating group inside the Advantage Solutions organization. With the expanded resources of Advantage, we provide additional solutions and industry expertise, coupled with the personal, boutique experience you deserve.
