Q. Is it worthwhile to visit a furniture wholesale market like Kasheli for a single item for home use?

Ans. Furniture is a decorative accessory. Even when buying one item, besides the utility factor, many consider the piece's aesthetics. Therefore, a wider choice helps a better selection. A large market like Kasheli is ideal for the variety it offers. However, the logistics cost may be a little higher for a single item.

Q. Considering the easy availability of e-retailers, is it a good idea to buy dry fruits from a wholesale outlet?

Ans. Buying online is easy and convenient. However, many of us are particular about the quality of the product while buying. When ordering dry fruit in bulk (or in small quantities) with a wholesaler, you can physically check the quality/packaging of every item. Furthermore, you can evaluate different quality variants. In addition, you can decide on the exact quantity while online sales usually offer you specific pre-packs.

Q. Will the clothes wholesalers of Mumbai arrange to send the purchased items to outstation destinations?

Ans. Logistics form an integral part of the wholesale business. Wholesalers dispatch materials all over their state and even beyond. Any wholesaler will happily arrange a despatch of items to your place. However, there may be a minimum quantity requirement.
