Online retailer extends lease on Warrington DC

The Hut Group, the online retailer and brand owner, has extended its lease on a 110,000 sq ft distribution centre in Warrington.

The business was launched in 2004 and has a range of retail sites covering entertainment, fashion, gifting and health & beauty, and sports nutrition.

It has agreed a new three-year lease with a break in 2015 on the premises at Stretton Distribution Centre.

The property has been refurbished and re-clad and includes two-storey office accommodation.

Julien Kenny-Levick, director, logistics and industrial at the North West office of Colliers secured the letting to The Hut Group on behalf of landlord Carmel Southend.

He said: “The Hut Group is one of the North West’s most ambitious and entrepreneurial businesses and this renewed commitment to a strategically positioned distribution hub is indicative of its ongoing success.”

Stretton Distribution Centre is one mile from the M6/M56 interchange and directly accessible via a new expressway. Manchester and Liverpool are 30 minutes drive-time away and more than 60 per cent of the UK population lives within a four hour drive of Warrington.
