NO excuse is needed at Jones Wholesale Business Store to start preparations for the festive season, with the Christmas grotto already up and open for business for nearly two months.
September may seem a bit early for some people, but for many businesses it is crucial to get started early. Each year the non-food wholesale cash and carry brings together a wealth of festive must-haves from crackers, artificial trees, decorations and lighting to brand-name gifts and toys, all on sale at trade prices.
Businesses signing up for a free membership will be spoilt for choice across the rest of the store in Heathfield Way, Kings Heath.
There are more than 18,000 lines, ranging from DIY, gardening, home furnishing, giftware and hardware to products for pets, cleaning the house or office, stationery and health and beauty.
Managing partner Simon Allitt and his brother Tom both take pride in the ongoing success of the Northampton-based family run business set up by their great-grandfather Percy Jones in 1919.
Simon said: "We have been supplying local shops and businesses for nearly 100 years and are extremely proud of our heritage and business. Our fabulous staff are the key to our success, providing excellent customer service and working tirelessly to keep the shelves stocked.
