John Lewis to close Scottish distribution centre

Written by Chris Lemmon

John Lewis has revealed plans to shut its distribution centre in Edinburgh next month, axing 78 jobs in the process.

A John Lewis spokesperson said: “Our site in Leith is no longer suitable to support our growing business. At the beginning of this year we began discussions with partners at our Edinburgh distribution hub about the future of the site, and after a consultation we have now confirmed that the site will be closing.

“Our site in Leith is no longer suitable to support our growing business, and by consolidating work in our more modern facility in Lister St, it will enable us to run a more productive model.

“We created an additional 40 new jobs at our Glasgow site as a result of this change, with the hope that a number of partners currently at our Leith site would apply for these roles, or others elsewhere in our business.”
