About Us: Brief History

Lawrence Batley OBELawrence Batley OBE developed the concept of Cash and Carry in 1958, when he opened the first Cash and Carry depot in the UK in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. The original company name was “Come and Get it”.

Over 50 years later the Batleys chain of Cash and Carrys has grown to the extent there are now 19 depots throughout the UK.

In 2005 Batleys was acquired by Bestway Holdings Ltd, increasing the total number of trading depots to 50 - making the group the second largest cash and carry wholesale trader in the UK.

In October 2005 Batleys launched a delivered petfood operation in Exeter, offering a delivery service of petfoods only within a specific local radius. Trading as BestPets, this delivery service has been rolled out to eight other locations, Newcastle, Coventry, Glasgow, Nottingham, Cardiff, Southampton Bristol and Gillingham with more to follow.
