From around 1815 until his death in 1834, Charleston merchant Isaac Barrett (c.1791-1834) operated general store Isaac Barrett & Co. With a location at the corner of King and Boundary Streets, and a store at 30 Vendue Range, Isaac Barrett & Co. dealt in all types of merchandise, from clothes to wagons, and sold to both retail and wholesale buyers. From his store, Barrett bought and sold products for his brother Jacob Barrett (1792-1871), who owned general stores in Camden and Columbia. Additionally, until 1827, the store operated in formal partnership with Columbia general stores Barrett’s, Barrett & Dunlap, and Judah Barrett & Co.
