TK Maxx to open 6th warehouse

TK Maxx plans to open a warehousing and distribution centre in Walsall, West Midlands, as it embarks on aggressive expansion.

The retailer already has five distribution centres in the UK, but its target of opening 25 stores by the end of this year has created a need for more warehouse space, said a spokeswoman. She confirmed the retailer's intentions to develop the Green Lane site in Walsall, but said TK Maxx still had to get approval.

The retailer was due to meet the council's development control committee on Wednesday to discuss its plans.
