“As a family-owned retailer, we are able to use our personal experience to really understand the needs of the independent and to help them succeed in this tough economic climate. With over 180 retail stores UK wide, we are also in the favourable position to pass on incredible savings on the best-selling lines – making us the cheapest importer and distributor of discount goods.
“We are taking the traditional cash and carry concept but adapting it to be accessible to all with our easy to navigate site and delivery available across the UK and Europe. We also have a showroom in Normanton, Wakefield for those who would prefer to visit us in person.”
