Jobber Law and Legal Definition
A jobber is a merchant who acts as a middleman by buying products, usually in bulk or lots, and then selling them to various retailers. A jobber typically specializes in specific types of products, such as auto parts, electrical and plumbing materials, or textiles. A jobber differs from a broker or agent, who buys and acts for on behalf of clients, because a jobber buys and resells goods himself.
A jobber may also offer other services in addition to buying and selling. In the retail industry, a rack jobber is a wholesaler that is allowed by a store to install, stock, and replenish selected items on display racks.
