From modest beginnings in 1970’s Liverpool, delivering cards and stationery to local newsagents, MGC Wholesale opened our first warehouse in the city’s Devon Street in 1984 – before long doubling in size and taking over the warehouse next door.
By the 1990’s the business expanded into Party, all the while adding new lines to our traditional Cards and Stationery ranges.
A big step forward came in 2012 when we became part of the Impact Distribution Group, a purchasing network of 20 wholesale Stationery, Card and Party businesses serving the entire UK. At a stroke we had increased our ranges substantially whilst Impact’s immense buying power meant better prices and savings we could pass on to our retail customers, making MGC Wholesale even more competitive!
In May 2016 we relocated to our present bigger and brighter base in Dickson Street, right in the heart of the city of Liverpool.
In Balloons and Party we stock everything you need for that perfect party – for example latex, foil and bubble balloons from Qualitex and Unique Party, Glitz party range, baby shower decorations, tableware, Communion decorations, birthday decorations, Anagram themed party ranges, character foil balloons and party decorations. We also stock organza, confetti, napkins, cake boards and much, much more beside.
In Stationery we offer an A-Z of more than 1,500 products – everything the local retailer, newsagent or sub-Post Office needs – alongside pocket money toys and seasonal items such as bats & balls, buckets and spades and footballs.
In Cards & Giftwrap our extensive range features leading brands like Simon Elvin, Xpress Yourself, Design Studio, Heartstrings and Juicy Lemon. And as the seasons roll around, from Christmas to Easter we’ve got it covered, whether it’s cards, roll-wrap, decorations, balloons or Easter bonnets!
Online 24/7, 365 days a year
We know it’s vital our retail customers are always fully stocked with all the latest ranges. Which is why we’re putting as much of our range as possible online, as well as in the warehouse.
“Ordering online is a quick and easy solution when fresh stock is urgently required or time is short”, says managing director Simon Henaghan. “Plus, to offer customers even more flexibility, we now offer ‘click-and-collect’ from the Dickson Street warehouse – order online by 11:00 a.m. and collect after 1:00 p.m. the same day.
“Here at MGC Wholesale it’s all about service – the widest possible product ranges, the best prices and the easiest ways of doing business. Simples!”
