Progress on the build of our new HQ and distribution centre has been steady, and more importantly, on schedule!
Build completion is due for the week commencing 9th April and it’s really looking like the finished article from the outside! For an up-close look at the building, you can watch a 3 minute fly-by video below (thanks to Dave Cox on YouTube for sharing this with us!)
On the inside, there’s a hive of activity going on, with the warehouse floor being poured this week (that’s nearly 110,000 square feet of floor space to fill!) and the offices are coming along nicely: miles of cabling has been installed and the suspended ceilings are going up.
The warehouse space will be fitted with racking from the 19th March and will take 6 weeks to fit, so we expect to start filling the very large space with stock in early May. We really cant wait!
More updates to follow soon!
The 108,000 sq ft warehouse and office complex will see central operations of Charlies move from Newtown, home to our HQ for over 30 years, to Offa’s Dyke Business Park just outside Welshpool. The move will open up even more opportunities for growth for Charlies, which is currently one of the largest independent retailers in Wales.
