One of the UK's leading cash and carry wholesalers has called on British companies to make a new year resolution to ensure they enjoy maximum savings when purchasing business supplies in 2012.

Online PR News – 25-January-2012 – – One of the UK's leading cash and carry wholesalers has called on British companies to make a new year resolution to ensure they enjoy maximum savings when purchasing business supplies in 2012.

Manchester-based Makro operates a chain of 30 purpose-built cash and carry stores across the United Kingdom and every day helps thousands of businesses to save money on a huge range of food and non-food products from shampoo to cash registers.

To celebrate the start of 2012, the company is currently running deals on a wide range of goods including infrared grills, manual fill water boilers and computer printers. As well as offering up to 27 per cent off a selected range of Lincat catering equipment, Makro has slashed the prices of a variety of other items such as its George Foreman Grill and Griddle, Henry Hoover vacuum cleaner and Silentnight Regal Supreme Single Mattress.

Paul Ramage at Makro, said: "We are well aware of the financial difficulties facing businesses across the UK at the moment, which is why we are offering discounts on a range of popular items online and though our stores.

"Makro understands that businesses need to have access to affordable, quality products that they can rely on, especially at a time when budgets are being squeezed across the board. Our aim has always been to make vital business supplies available to companies at the right price, and customers can rest assured that this is exactly what we'll continue to do throughout 2012."

Earlier this month Makro announced that it had cut prices on thousands of products until April 2012.
