Major footwear retailer, Deichmann has agreed a lease for a purpose built 162,500 sq ft warehouse with ancillary offices at Centrix Business Park in Corby, with site owners and developers, Clowes Developments.
Centrix Business Park forms part of Corby’s new regeneration framework and comprises a 39-acre (15.8 hectare) development that is suitable for “Built to Suit” industrial/warehouse opportunities.
The commercial lease agreement marks significant inward investment for the area as the retailer places its brand-new UK distribution facility in Corby. The retailer will retain its head office in neighbouring Market Harborough.
James Richards, Development Director at Clowes Developments, said: “Securing another major occupier for the scheme in Corby is a great result.
“The scope of the building and its high-spec delivery will, without doubt, add considerable value to the ongoing regeneration aspirations for this town.
“Bringing a household names such as Deichmann and BakeAway to Centrix Park are lines in the sand marking the bright new future for the former brownfield site.”
Chris Holden, Director at Deichmann, said: “We are continuing to expand our presence in the UK both online and opening new High Street stores.
“This development will enhance that expansion and enable us to improve service levels across the business.
