Carl started in the business as a sales rep fresh off the boat from England in 1988. He became the owner of the business with his wife Vanessa in 1998 when the previous owners Alec and Joan Wheelhouse retired.

Before you go dobbing him in to immigration he does have his citizenship (it had been tried ;)). He is sadly still a supporter of the english cricket team.

Testimonials

We thought we could save money buying from a capitalistic giant supermarket chain. We didn't factor our cost of time pushing the trolley up and down the isles, parking, getting the products to our store, or simply they don't have the range. We forgot we were supporting those responsible for the demise of small family businesses. When the handsome young man came from J&A to offer us help we jumped at the opportunity. Not only do J&A Wholesalers offer industry best pricing, but they have also given me the winning lotto numbers each week. It's such a shame I cannot afford to pay for a System 45. For an extra fee they have offered a map that shows the position of the end of the rainbow.Joe Bloggs, Owner, Your Local Newsagent

Our grocery warehouse gave me a gadget where I could walk the shelves and scan the code for any missing products on my shelf. Great in theory, not good in practice. Some sneaky person keeps stealing the labels for confectionery shelves. The rep from J&A had been coming trying to sell his wares for the previous few weeks. I gave in and let him sort the counters and chips for us. He knows his stuff. I suspect he has a carload of bar-code tickets. I rarely pay them on time and they try to bluff me with credit hold. Sometimes I win, sometimes they do. I'm happy with that.Spiro Souvlaki, Independent Supermarket Owner, The best one

Once I had a sore throat from yodeling too much. I looked up throat lozenges in my browser and The Distributors Canberra popped up. They hooked me up with the best products that suited yodeling fixes. Frank Sinatra, Chief Crooner, Sing-along-with Frank

I bought from J&A Wholesalers once. Not only did I receive a free Unicorn in the box of pops, but all my hair grew back.Telly Savalas, King of the Pop, Who loves ya baby R'Us
