Now in our 10th year on-line The Wholesaler UK was launched in September 1999 & it has proved both useful & popular for retailers throughout the country looking for wholesalers & trade suppliers of a diverse range of products including wholesale clothing and fashions, giftware, electrical goods, novelties, furniture & furnishings, toiletries, sports goods, new age products, furniture & furnishings, cosmetics, clearance lines & ex-catalogue stock to mention a few.  Unlike other wholesale directories of which there are many, we only link to genuine wholesale suppliers who are based and hold stock in the UK and / or Ireland, we will have spoken to them to ensure that they supply the independent retail trade and to make sure that they are who they say they are. If they cannot provide us with verifiable contact details we will not list them.
