It’s exciting times for White Stores as we are currently renovating and moving into a new warehouse with more space, functionality and flexibility than any of our previous warehousing facilities. This impressive 50,000 square foot building in Coggeshall, Essex will help us further improve the handling and efficiency of deliveries to our customers, whether they order a complete rattan dining sofa set or just a small garden ornament.
“I am very pleased to announce that White Stores are relocating to this new facility which will improve our despatch lead times and dramatically improve efficiency,” says James Whiteley, founder and managing director of White Stores. “With every item now located by bay number, we should have no reason to delay shipments and hope to be able to offer next day deliveries on all ‘In Stock’ items from 1st March 2016. Once again we are making huge strides to improve and increase our infrastructure which will benefit our customers.”
Founded in 2005, White Stores are a successful family-run business specialising in the sale of garden furniture and accessories. Earlier this month, we won the Growing Business of the Year Award at the Countywide Essex Business Awards 2015.
This big space is just the rear section of our new warehouse. The nearby airfield at Earls Colne is home to the Essex Air Ambulance helicopters – possibly the only vehicles in the area that are quicker than our delivery vans!
As part of the warehouse’s renovation, we are installing new roof lighting.
