Pricecheck, founded in Sheffield, England in 1978 is a specialist distributor of branded excess inventory and fast-moving consumer goods both throughout the UK and worldwide. As a second-generation, family owned business, we have over 37 years of trading experience and expertise which has enabled our company to develop close and long-lasting relationships with leading manufacturers and brand owners across the globe.
With 90,000 square foot of storage space in our purpose-built warehouse, we are able to accommodate up to over 10,000 pallet spaces worth of stock and have the facilities required to deal with parcels of all types and sizes, regardless of the quality of the stock. Through our in-house contract packing team, we are able to re-label products with local languages or any other specific customer requests.
Pricecheck Toiletries Ltd was established in 1978 by the entrepreneurial Lythe family who soon expanded their local retail business into an international health and beauty wholesale operation.
Pricecheck moves home - With a solid business foundation in place, Pricecheck expanded into a purposely redeveloped steel works. This was subsequently extended to a 10,000 square metres warehouse and office just 2 miles from the M1 and central to the whole of the UK.
Product range expansion - Pricecheck expanded its branded product portfolio from not only branded health and beauty toiletries, but also cosmetics and fragrance, household, medical and children's based products.
2011 - 2014
Award-winning success - Pricecheck's main focus on excess inventory and price advantage leads to successful and award-winning business growth.
In April 2015 Pricecheck were honoured with the highest accolade for UK business success, the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise in International Trade.
On Monday 22nd February 2016, Pricecheck moved premises to Beighton Link Business Park, after 14 years at Upwell Street.
2016 - Onwards
Having successfully moved to our new, state-of-the-art premises, Pricecheck now looks to expand all areas of the business. Specifically, we intend to widen our product categories, increase stock levels and endeavour to trade in further, unexplored prospective territories in addition to the 75 countries we currently export to. We predict that over the next five years our staff numbers will increase to over 150 employees and that our turnover will grow by 20% by the end of our first year. With exciting prospects ahead, Pricecheck are very much looking to the future.
