Decathlon is opening a new distribution centre in the UK to support its growing store estate and online sales.

Logistics firm Barjane has opened a 257,000 square foot distribution centre in Northampton for Decathlon, which is moving to the larger unit from a smaller building nearby.

Decathlon UK expansion manager, Ricardo Rodriguez, said: “This Decathlon facility is ideally and strategically located to service our existing store network and growing online demand. We wanted to remain in Brackmills and continue to contribute to the local economy by creating the best place to work in the Brackmills Industrial Estate.”
