Majestic Wine Warehouses is building up business through its web site by linking up with unrelated businesses which provide new customer bases. The wine-by-the-case operator has joined forces with a wedding site called confetti.co and handbag.com which is financed by Boots. MD Tim How said the company's business on the web will be worth £1m this year, equivalent to the performance of one of its mature stores. Its interim results this week showed total sales up 6.6% to £36.9m in the six months to the end of September. The only dent in its performance was a drop in pretax profits of £88,000 to £1.1m due to slower buying after millennium stock build up. {{NEWS }}
