Their history goes back to 1916 with the establishment of Newry Cash & Carry and again to 1920 when J & E Whitten were formed.  In 2000 both firms merged to become Savage & Whitten Wholesale or S&W Wholesale as they are now known, one of the largest independent wholesalers in the island of Ireland,
