John Lewis planning to shut Edinburgh distribution hub

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

John Lewis is planning to close its distribution centre in Leith, Edinburgh, in October.

The retailer will centralise distribution operations at its hub in Glasgow, where 40 new jobs will be created.

A spokesperson for the company said: “Our site in Leith is no longer suitable to support our growing business, and by consolidating work in our more modern facility in Lister St, it will enable us to run a more productive model.

“We created an additional 40 new jobs at our Glasgow site as a result of this change, with the hope that a number of partners currently at our Leith site would apply for these roles, or others elsewhere in our business.”
