Boohoo to close distribution centre putting hundreds of jobs at risk

More than 420 jobs are at risk after fast fashion group Boohoo announced it will close its Wellingborough distribution centre in the new year.

The etailer only opened its Park Farm Industrial Estate base in April 2021, which it used for brands including Coast, Oasis and Warehouse.

But in January 2023 the site will close, impacting about 420 workers who have been told they will be able to apply for a similar role at its warehouse in Daventry or elsewhere.

Boohoo has invested in three of its distribution centres over the past few years – in Burnley, Daventry, and Sheffield – creating increased capacity to manage its growing portfolio of brands.

“Our facility in Wellingborough has been an important part of that network for the last two years, enabling us to upgrade our three other sites across the UK,” a Boohoo spokesperson said, adding: “Now that this stage of investment is complete, we will be closing our distribution centre in Wellingborough in the new year.”

Boohoo said they appreciated that it is ‘awful news’ for staff and that they would do all they can to support them.
