North London wholesaler J&J Wines has become the 30th member of Landmark Wholesale.

The family-owned business in Southall operates from a 21,000sq ft depot offering both a C&C and delivered service for retailers. The depot opened last October and stocks 6,000 grocery, alcohol and non-food lines.

The J&J depot is located next to a rival Bestway depot which, claimed Sandhar, was more of a bonus than a hindrance. "It's a common fact that retailers use several wholesalers and therefore it's natural that retailers coming to the area to use Bestway will also drop into us, and vice versa."
