We’re building a brand new distribution centre just outside Inverness Airport to replace our existing one nearby – with all colleagues due to move from the old site to the new one. Due to open next summer, our purpose built 12,000 sqft site will provide colleagues with the very latest facilities to improve their working environment and operate more effectively. Our investment also shows our commitment to serving communities across Scotland and sets us up to be ready for more stores as we continue our expansion plans.
The site will be built with the environment in mind and will serve our double decker fleet of lorries that help to reduce CO2 emissions in our supply chain. As an ‘anchor tenant’ to the new Inverness Airport Business Park, we’re also setting the tone for the site which hopes to attract more investment which in turn will help the local community.
As we continue our strategy to be the UK’s number 1 convenience retailer, having the right distribution network to support our stores is vital.
