New Decathlon warehouse opens in the UK to meet growing demand

Feb 7, 2019

Decathlon is expanding its distribution capabilities 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 the sporting goods giant, which is relocating to the new warehouse from a smaller building nearby.

In addition to the new facilities, the premises allow the retailer to further expand with up to 100,000 square feet of additional warehouse space.

The French company operates 44 stores within the UK and is currently building a further site in Ealing, London. Last year it added new locations in Portsmouth, Telford, Northarbour and Surrey Quays, London.

Located just 70 miles from London and roughly equidistant from Bristol and Manchester, the new logistics centre provides fast connections to some of the UK’s top cities. Birmingham Airport is just a one hour drive while Felixstowe, the UK’s biggest container shipping port, is two hours 30 mins away.

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.”
