Sainsbury’s confirms Exeter pull-out

Sainsbury’s confirms Exeter pull-out

A year after it signalled a surprise end to plans to build a 500,000 sq ft South West regional distribution depot in Exeter, Sainsbury's has finally killed the plan.

The site near the airport at the Exeter Gateway intermodal logistics site, Clyst Honiton, has already been prepared. The site will now be sold.

The depot was to have served 35 supermarkets in the South West, including Devon and Cornwall.

The site will be 7 acres larger than that required for the 520,000 sq ft Sainsbury depot, making it one of the largest logistics plots available in the South West. Local press speculation links the site to Amazon.
