BookBrunch understands that Gardners is supplying Sainsbury's, one of the supermarkets left without supplies of books when EUK, part of Woolworths, went into administration. Book supply from EUK to other customers resumed last week.
The involvement of Gardners raises the question of whether it could take up other accounts - including the largest, Tesco - should EUK collapse. The Eastbourne-based wholesaler certainly has the capacity for the extra business, but it would have to examine carefully the margins that supplying to supermarkets offers.
