Wholesale Xpress cash & carry celebrates its best trading year ever

Our Wholesale Xpress trade cash and carry division is celebrating its best year yet, following a 32% rise in revenue.

The unit is run by a third-generation family member, Luke Richardson, and is a one-stop-shop for horticultural professionals in Yorkshire and the surrounding areas.

The cash and carry have seen revenue rise by 32% compared to the previous year and experienced a significant increase in customers. To further support the impressive business growth, Johnson’s have employed an additional two members of staff to fulfil the surge in demand.

With only one year in the role as cash and carry manager, Luke Richardson said: “Revenue saw its biggest incline through spring, following small incremental improvements made to our quoting system, tills and the general appearance of the store. We also increased our product offering by 29% which resulted in the sale of a further 134,311 plants.

“With our sights already set on next year, our focus is firmly on consolidation, given the uncertainty of Brexit and its potential knock-on effect to our industry”

The trade cash & carry is located 2.5 miles from the A1, Junction 47 and offers a one-stop trade shop to landscape contractors and gardeners, garden designers, tree surgeons, estates, hotels, wedding venues, caravan parks and universities in Yorkshire and beyond.

Supported by the wider nursery business and with strong links to UK & European suppliers, the trade cash and carry unit boasts a wide range of products including shrubs, herbaceous, trees, hedges, climbers and seasonal lines to suit all.

A recent plant supply by the cash and carry included an impressive order of plants to restore the grounds of the new 5-star Grantley Hall Hotel. Varieties included a number of large topiary, including Fagus (Beech) domes and Buxus (Box) balls, as well as thousands of herbaceous, shrubs and grasses used for decorative borders, large hedging elements were also supplied to create partitions in the Hall’s gardens.
