JTF - For Everything You Need
Member Name: blondgem
I was first made aware of JTF Wholesale around 5 years ago, it is similar to the likes of Macro, however they do not specialise in as much as what Macro does. In order to get into JTF, you need a card through a business and the first time I visited I really hadn't got a high opinion of it at all, and thought that majority of the stuff that they sold was a load of tat.
A couple of months ago a JTF Representtaive came into my workplace and asked if anyone would like to register for a wholesale card, in which majority of us did, and I never anticipated on actually using my card and visiting any of the store.
The local store to me is just 2 minutes away from my house on an industrial estate and as a one of as I had had the newsletter through in the post and seen a few things that caught my eye, my aprtner and I decided to pop down to take a look at what was on offer and much to our surprise we
came out with a trolley full of stuff and JTF has seemed to be a place that we now visit on a regular basis and never come out empty handed.
Whatever you are looking for, you can find ata a great price, now that Summer is coming they have now opened up a garden section with an outdoor section similar to of that which you would find in B&Q which sells fence panels, flowers pots, plants and shrubs, hanging baskets all at a very low price. Indoors near this section, it goes into a lot more depth and seeds, both flowers, fruit, salad and vegetables are available at a much lower price than you would find in a garden centre.
For tools, JTF has got to be checked out, for example they sell a lot of Screwfix products, which are greatly reduced in price than if you bought them from Screwfix itself. My partner bought a set of 22" saws which consisted of three saws for just £5 plus the VAT. All items within the store have VAT added onto them after.
I had recently been locking for some door knobs for a set of double doors that I have leading into my dining room. IN B&Q you are lucky to get these for any less than £10, the ones that I liked in particular were £14 for chrome ones, however JTF have exactly the same knobs with a different brand name for just £6 plus the VAT. The variety is not very good, however the seem to hold the most modern and leave the older version alone.
For washing items, i.e. Soap powder buying bulk is a must from JTF, they have many cleaning agents for just 69p each which I have found to work exceptionally well, especially stainless steel cleaner which I was very impressed with.
For animal lovers, they have everthing that you require form bedding, bowls, cages, treats all cheaper than anywhere I have seen them before, especially the bedding which is quite luxurious for your pet.
Furniture and home accessories are sold here. Mattresses that you would normally pay quite a lot of money for are available at £89 for a double mattress and £69 for a single mattress and these are not economy mattresses they are very good quality. The have huge area for lighting, pictures, mirrors and homes accessories, which reminds me a little of Dunelm Mill however the price of the products is a lot cheaper and Dunelm itself is not the most expensive of places.
WE all spend a fortune on wrapping paper and bags for present you are lucky to get for less than £2. At JTF they have paper and bags to suit all occasions, majority less than 50p and no more than a £1, which is well worth stocking up on as you never know when you might need them and they always come in use.
As a keen camper, for camping accessories I was overwhelmed at the price of some of the things. For a normal kettle, JTF charge 99p, camping shops £6.99, picnic set - JTF £12.00, camping shop - £24.99. They also hold a lot of things that you don't see in camping shops on the cheaper side which come in extremely useful.
JTF have 9 stores located in the Midlands and NOrth;
There opening times are Monday to Friday 8am - 9pm, Saturday 8am - 7pm and Sunday 9am - 6pm.
If there is one near you and you have never been I would recommend you obtain a card and take a look as you will certainly not come out empty handed.
