Dreams reopens Cardiff distribution service centre and retail store
Bed retailer Dreams has officially reopened its Cardiff distribution centre and retail store following a £300,000 investment.
The distribution service centre has increased in size to 31,000 square feet which means it can now store more than 2,000 mattresses and bases.
Dreams said the extra capacity will help to improve product availability and provide shorter lead times for customers. Some 13 delivery vans will operate out of the facility six days a week.
As part of its people-first strategy, Dreams has also increased the space dedicated to staff welfare facilities to four times the previous size.
Meanwhile, the retail store now covers 12,500 square feet making it Dreams’ flagship shop in Wales.
Jonathan Hirst, chief executive of Dreams, said: “At Dreams, we are always looking for ways to support our colleagues and better serve our customers. That’s why we have made a meaningful investment in our Cardiff distribution service centre and retail store.
“This is a significant step forward in delivering on both our growth and people-first strategies and will mean we continue building on our position as the UK’s Most Loved bed retailer and a leading employer. We’re looking forward to reopening our doors to colleagues and customers from the local area.”
