Fast-fashion giant Boohoo is set to shut down its Northamptonshire-based distribution centre putting 400 jobs at risk, according to reports.


Boohoo is reported to be closing down distribution centres at Daventry and Wellingborough

Boohoo is said to be closing the DC in a bid to streamline its distribution network, as first reported by Drapers.

The fashion giant reportedly launched a consultation at the end of last year and is “organising a careers fair” for the 400 employees impacted ahead of the closure at Daventry.

The warehouse – a former Arcadia depot – was first opened by Boohoo in 2021, following its acquisition of department store Debenhams and the Arcadia Group brands Burton, Dorothy Perkins and Wallis.

The announcement follows reports last month that Boohoo is also set to close its Wellingborough distribution centre, putting 420 employees at risk of losing their jobs.

A Boohoo spokesperson said: “For the past three years, our Daventry distribution centre has played an important role in Boohoo Group’s UK operation. We would like to thank colleagues for their hard work during this time.

“As our business and customer needs evolve, the group has taken the difficult but necessary decision to close our Daventry operation and divert investment to other UK sites, in order to better serve our customers around the world.

“We are working closely with all affected colleagues to ensure they are fully supported throughout this time.”
