The Range commences with massive DC project

Plymouth headquartered value retailer The Range has commenced with the development of a 1.2 million sq.ft. distribution centre in Gateway 14 in Suffolk. Scheduled for completion within a year, the new development will support plans to add a further 100 stores to its chain which currently has 210 locations in the UK and Ireland.

Some 1600 jobs will be created in Suffolk as the business moves to expand its operations with both the aforementioned physical stores and online.

Alex Simpkin, CEO, The Range said: “This is not only a major landmark in the expansion of The Range’s estate, but it’s also great to be able to announce some positive news that will, quite simply, inject millions of pounds into the UK economy.

“This vast distribution centre will allow us to expand to further locations around the UK – creating new jobs, opening more stores, and providing an even better service in store and online for customers. It will allow us to expand our product offer, including even more unbelievable value and price-sensitive lines.”
