An expanding online furniture retailer has expanded its storage space after taking a long-term lease on a 100,000sq ft warehouse unit at Sirdar Business Park in Wakefield.
Furniture And Choice, which has benefited from a mass move to online shopping in recent months, has seen a 150% growth this year and expects to generate a turnover of £50 million for 2020-21.
The expansion will also see the company create 40 new jobs.
“It’s great news that we have been able to help another growing Yorkshire business find the space they need to prosper and create new jobs,” said Matt Jennings, commercial surveyor at Eddisons, which acted for landlord Sirdar Properties.
“We had a number of parties interested in the Sirdar Business Park units and it was satisfying to get this one over the line, having worked with Sirdar Properties for many years.
“The estate has always generated plenty of interest, offering high quality space just a stone’s throw from the M1, and we now have only one new-to-market 18,000 sq ft unit available.”
