The Range to open a new Yorkshire warehouse from a 547,000 sq ft former Poundworld depot
The retailer has signed up for a 31 acre site at the M62 motorway, Normanton, which offers 547,000 sq ft of distribution floorspace.

The Range has signed a 20-year lease on the building, which will complement its existing distribution centres in Thorne and Avonmouth. The company has more than 175 stores nationwide and stocks more than 65,000 products, from homewares to furniture and DIY products to art supplies. 

Alex Simpkin, Chief Executive Officer of The Range, said: “As part of our ongoing expansion and new supply chain initiatives we were looking for flexible, additional space. The key attraction of Normanton was its close proximity to our existing Northern distribution centre in Doncaster and of course the nearby motorway network.”

Global property giant Exeter Property Group acquired the property last year in a £43.5 million off-market deal advised by Gent Visick’s Leeds and London offices.
