Wigan megashed goes up for sale

The former Littlewoods Shop Direct distribution depot in Martland Park, Wigan is up for sale through agents King Sturge.

The warehouse, built in 1976, comprises a 672,087 sq ft single storey high bay bulk carton/pallet store that offers clear heights of 20.4m on a 15-acre site.

“While it was originally built for mail order purposes, this building would also suit document/self storage and import and export distribution companies looking for large cost effective space”, said David Brooks of King Sturge.

“The scale of premises represents an ideal opportunity for companies looking to consolidate a number of operations under one roof and we will be marketing the unit on a local and national basis.”

As one of the largest units in the Wigan area the unit is fully fitted with a racking and picking system. Currently occupied by Littlewoods Shop Direct, it will be available on a freehold or leasehold basis with offers over £10 million being invited for an outright sale.
