the dictionary says WAREHOUSE is correct, but WHAREHOUSE has always been a spelling option that Ive seen as well (ie company names)
can you advise if WHAREHOUSE can be used?

My Oxford doesn't list wharehouse or whare, nor does dictionary.com, but that doesn't mean to say it's incorrect, spelling-wise. There're a great number of companies that use the name "wharehouse", and there are a great number of on-line English speakers, possibly from Australia and New Zealand, who seem to use that spelling as well. I've yet to find anything on where the variation originated from, but I what I can tell you is this: whare is the Maori word for "house".
Could the spelling wharehouse be a borrowing from Maori?
All the best,
