600 full or part time Lancashire jobs could be created at a proposed Waitrose distribution in Chorley.
The supermarket chain will submit a planning application to Chorley Borough Council for a £35 million, 360,000 square foot warehouse facility in the Buckshaw Village area of the Lancashire town.
If the plan is approved then 600 full or part time jobs could be created for warehouse and catering staff, drivers and office workers. The new Waitrose warehouse and office facility could be up and running as early as September 2012.
Supply chain director at Waitrose’s, David Jones, spoke of the new full and part time Lancashire jobs which could be created, saying: “We’re delighted to be making such a significant investment in Lancashire, creating up to 600 new jobs. We’ve made no secret of our plans to take the Waitrose brand to more people in more places and we’re currently still under represented in the north, a key area for our growth ambitions. This new regional distribution centre will help unlock significant opportunities for us.”
The new facility would help Waitrose distribute and supply 80 outlets in the county of Lancashire and continue the retailer’s expansion in the North.
