The Today’s Group has announced that newly established wholesaler Gold Star Cash amp; Carry has joined the membership and will commence trading in spring 2011.
Gold Star Cash amp; Carry was established on December 15 on completion of acquiring the assets of Premier Wholesale from the administrators. However, the new venture has no connection or association with the former business.
The cash and carry will carry a full range of grocery, impulse and licensed products, together with a range of catering, foodservice and speciality lines, at its newly refurbished 33,000sq ft depot in Harrow, Middlesex.
Vijay Thanwani, managing director of Gold Star, said he was confident of reaching an annual turnover of £50 within five years, and added: “I chose the Today’s Group because its market position speaks for itself. We are really looking forward to joining the Today’s Group, developing a thriving partnership with them and receiving the support and extensive benefits so many successful wholesalers in its membership enjoy.”
Bill Laird, managing director of Today’s Group, said: “We are delighted to welcome Gold Star Cash amp; Carry to the group and we are confident we can assist Vijay and his company to establish itself and achieve its long-term ambitions.”
