Welcome to Andersons Wholesale (AKA the Norfolk Pole!)*
We are a family owned and run wholesale business which was established in 1984 by Betty Anderson.
Originally a shop owner with her husband, Betty and her son Paul started the wholesale business together and they supplied shops throughout East Anglia via van sales with toys, cards, gift wrap, party items and gifts. In the 90s our business rapidly grew locally and when our website was launched, we expanded overseas too and now have many customers all over the world. We now trade solely online, with many great new products daily.
Betty, Paul, his wife Sue and their sons Nick and Matt run the business together with a fabulous team of longstanding, experienced staff. We very much think of them as family too.
Betty is now a great grandma and still very much plays an active role. Her great grandchildren love to see all the new toys we carefully choose - and we like to think that one day they'll become the fourth generation of the Andersons family!
We're the leading online wholesaler for wholesale greeting cards, toys, filled party bags, food boxes, party bag fillers, gift wrap and bags, seasonal toys and gifts ...... and so much more!
For several years we've also been the leading supplier of quality pre-wrapped gifts for Santa's grottos - which are all wrapped in and stored in our UK warehouse ready for the festive season. Our fabulous team who wrap them are therefore affectionately known by us as our elves. And when ITV featured us on a news programme and Matt joked we were in the 'Norfolk Pole' * presenter Natalie Gray included that in the feature ....and it's kinda stuck!
Our extensive range of wrapped Christmas toys ideal for all Santa's Grottos, Christmas events and parties and student gifts are available both at Andersons Wholesale and our sister site www.wrappedgrottotoys.co.uk
We pride ourselves on really great products and really great customer service and we are a very friendly bunch. We always enjoy chatting to new and existing customers by phone on 01842 824505 and by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Our UK and overseas customers range from card shops, local stores and and post offices to pubs, play centres, large visitor attractions, event organisers, garden centres, holiday parks - and many more businesses.
We also supply PTA groups and schools, charities and fundraising groups, youth groups, Lions, Round Table and Rotary Clubs and many other national and international community organisations.
