    Default Cash & Carry Chains?

    Figured I might as well join one. Makro is the only chain I know and there are none near here... what other chains are there?

    Also, is there any need to justify shopping at these places as a business thing? Or once you join, is it irrelevant and you can buy personal stuff like any other store?

    Costco is not too bad either. It doesn't have to be for business use.
    The close proximity of the letters 'G' and 'T' are the reason I'll never again send an important email and end it with "Regards" ....

    WHS. JTF is also worth joining if you can be bothered to find the odd gem amongst the oodles of cheap crap that they sell.

    I hope so, I've not been to Makro for 2 years but couldn't resist their Modern Warfare 2 at a low low £17.39 +VAT deal.

    I don't know why they insist on you being in business? Why are they different? I joined by showing my MoD pass, some poor sod at the random mail point I gave is most probably still getting my monthly flyer.

    Makro lets you buy whatever you want - the only exception being that you can no longer buy bulk paracetamol / ibuprofen unless you are a medical company, unfortunately. They used to do some really good deals on them, too.

    Off this afternoon to buy the monthly Pepsi Max and crisp supply....

    Snag is with Costco, they sell nothing that I couldn't buy as cheap or cheaper in ASDA without a 50 mile return trip.

    Tyres! I got 4 Michelins the other day for £120 less than I'd been quoted anywhere else.

    They sell stuff businesses can't get from ASDA though. Like massive tubs of coffee and gross-packs of toilet roll

    Last time I was in Costco, I stocked up on very cheap "Plenty" kitchen towels.

    And a huge tub of Nutella and bumper container of jelly beans, yum!
