257,000 sq ft warehouse for CDS Superstores

CDS Superstores, which trades as The Range Home and Leisure, has taken a 256,640 sq ft warehouse facility at Dearne Mills, Barnsley.

The units are located off Junction 38 of the M1. The remainder of the estate is occupied by Frozen Value.

The RangeAlex Simpkin, head of supply chain at CDS, said: “As part of our on-going expansion and new supply chain initiatives we were looking for flexible, additional space to facilitate our new northern home delivery operation.

“The key attraction of Dearne Mills was its close proximity to our existing northern distribution centre in Doncaster and of course the nearby motorway network.”

The deal was negotiated by Rob Oliver, director, industrial and distribution at Bilfinger GVA, who added: “We are delighted to secure this letting on behalf of our clients, F&C REIT.”
