Independent retailer to invest £500k in distribution centre

Norfolk furniture and home furnishings retailer Aldiss has confirmed plans to invest in its Fakenham distribution centre.

The business is pumping in around £500,000 of investment to improve the facilities and efficiencies of its warehouse and distribution operation, which services the company’s two retail stores in Norwich and Fakenham.

As part of the project, phase one will see part of the warehouse demolished, while recladding and roofing will feature in phase two. There will also be a new purpose-built warehouse unit constructed to replace shipping containers currently used for storage.

The work is being implemented over a 12-month period to minimise any potential disruption and to allow the business to continue to receive and distribute goods.

Aldiss said that the investment will bolster both its online and instore growth once complete.
