Boris visits Waitrose’s dark store

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson visited Waitrose’s new online fulfilment centre in Acton, West London last Friday.

Johnson, said: “These are challenging times for employers looking to create jobs and opportunities and so it is great news that Waitrose is expanding its operations back in its spiritual home of West London. Scores of previously unemployed people are now hard at work in this fantastic new facility, dispatching orders with impressive speed and accuracy to customers across the capital.”

The facility is a former John Lewis distribution centre and the conversion cost £3m.
