Goundwork begins at our new HQ!

Setting the scene for our new headquarters and distribution centre…

An exciting new chapter for Charlies Stores has opened with the preparation of the ground for our new headquarters in Welshpool. The 108,000 sq ft warehouse and office complex will see central operations 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. At the “Cutting the Sod” ceremony, which was attended by Cabinet Secretary for the Economy, Ken Skates (above: centre-left), Charlies Managing Director Designate, Rebecca Lloyd (above: centre-right), said:

“We are delighted to finally see groundwork begin on our new headquarters and distribution centre. We are proud to call mid Wales our home and are pleased we can continue to do this with this new state-of-the-art facility. As a growing business, this represents an exciting time for us and will give us the option to expand even further in the future.”

We expect to move into our new home in the early part of 2018 – we’ll keep you posted!
