New wholesaler Gold Star Cash & Carry has officially opened for business.

The Today's Group member acquired the former Premier Wholesale depot in Harrow, London, earlier this year and has extended its sales area to 30,000 sq ft.

It said there had been a "very encouraging" response from the local business community to its opening, and registrations were running ahead of projections.

"The team has been working hard to make our launch successful and we look forward to supplier support," said general manager Yvonne Scott-Sawyer.
