Boohoo to close distribution centre

13th December 2022 | Phoebe Dobke

Boohoo has announced its Wellingborough distribution centre will close in January 2023.

The fast-fashion group opened the centre at Park Farm Industrial Estate in April 2021 and shared its use with its other brands, Coast, Oasis, and Warehouse.

More than 420 jobs are now at risk destipe Boohoo promising over 1,000 jobs when the centre opened during ‘a time of great uncertainty’.

Workers are now applying for similar roles in Daventry and Burnley warehouses, which the group has been investing in to manage its growing brand portfolio.

A Boohoo group spokesperson said: “Over the last three years, as our portfolio of brands has grown, we have been investing heavily into our distribution network to ensure we can continue to offer customers the rapid delivery times they expect.

“Our facility in Wellingborough has been an important part of that network for the last two years, enabling us to upgrade our three other sites across the UK. Now that this stage of investment is complete, we will be closing our distribution centre in Wellingborough in the new year.”
