MP describes new Cash and Carry as great news for Hull

The latest investment in Hull by one of the UK’s leading independent cash and carry operators has been welcomed by East Hull MP, Karl Turner, as great news for the city.

The latest investment in Hull by one of the UK’s leading independent cash and carry operators has been welcomed by East Hull MP, Karl Turner, as great news for the city.

Dee Bee Wholesale, the cash and carry brand of Grimsby-based wholesale specialist, The Ramsden Group, has returned to Hull after an absence of 25 years in the form of a state-of-the-art depot on Leads Road.

Following a six-figure refurbishment, the building now houses a vast range of more than 6,000 products and has created almost 30 new jobs.

The new Dee Bee was officially opened by Mr Turner who described the investment as “terrific news for Hull”. He added:

This (Dee Bee) is a great independent business and a good local employer.

It speaks volumes about the great people of this city that when these new jobs were advertised the company was inundated with applications from people genuinely wanting to work here.

He told the company:

This is great news for Hull and to see you bringing new employment to the east of the city in particular.

The Group’s managing director, Nick Ramsden, said the new depot had quickly become a major player in the cash and carry business across the region. He added:

Many people remember the Dee Bee brand from when it last had a base in Hull 25 years ago but we have been delighted with the way we have been able to make inroads into our target market further north and west of the city.

The Leads Road depot, which is trade only, has already recruited more than 2,000 business customers with more than 30 new registrations coming in each week. Since it began trading in April, it has sold more than 118,000 pints of beer in draft barrels, more than a million cans and bottles of beer and 1.5m cans or bottles of pop.

Nick added:

We had over 100 guests and suppliers plus 300 customers attend the official opening on what turned out to be a record six-figure sales day which included a very sweet order for us – 13,000 lkg bags of sugar!
