Sheffield-based wholesaler Pricecheck has joined Today’s Group as part of its plans to double sales and staff over the next five years.

The wholesaler sells discounted clearance stock - predominantly in the health and beauty sectors - to customers including discount and independent retailers, pharmacies, internet retailers and other wholesalers.

Today’s Group managing director Bill Laird said: “Pricecheck is a fast-growing, forward-thinking business, keen on investment and expansion – they are an excellent fit for our group.”

This year Pricecheck will relocate to larger premises on the outskirts of Sheffield as part of a five-year plan to double turnover from £40m to £80m and increase staff numbers from 75 to 150.

“Retailers and their customers will benefit from Pricecheck’s competitive pricing on leading branded goods, combined with the benefits of our promotional programme”, added Laird.

Jointly run by managing directors Mark Lythe and Debbie Harrison, the business recently received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, which recognised its rapid growth in export turnover from £3m in 2009 to £12m in 2014.

Managing director Debbie Harrison said: “Winning the Queen’s Award will enhance our reputation worldwide and will help us to achieve our ambitious growth plans.”
