Online director The Wholesaler UK was founded in 1999, when the internet was in its infancy. The website aimed to bring together the best of the country’s wholesale suppliers and the independent retail trade.
"It's hard to believe that we are now celebrating our 20th birthday, still going strong and pursuing our original goal," says Sue Naylor, director. "We put our success down to our accountability, the fact that we personally vet our content and our policy of linking only to bona fide traders. It's what gives retailers the confidence to use the directory in their search for new suppliers.
"A big thanks to our loyal customers for their continued support! We look forward to welcoming more wholesalers on board in the future, whatever products they're offering, to join our ever-growing community. During our birthday year, we're offering a 10 per cent discount off our normal rates for new advertisers. Please contact us for details.
"As you can see, our dog mascot is getting in the party mood as well. He's only three years old but that's almost 20 in dog years! Here's to another 20 years collaborating!"
