As CBA reported on Sept. 23, CLC UK moved its warehouse from Alresford, south of London, to Sandycroft in Wales where it has partnered with Eden.co.uk, a major online retailer.
“Our two organizations are now co-located in this building,” said David Almack, national director and publisher for CLC USA. “CLC owns the building and is leasing part of it to Eden; the signage out front has both organizations on it.”
Now eight weeks in, Almack says they are well on course. “We are currently trading at around 80 percent of lines ordered in terms of availability. This, coupled with installing a new computer system, is a remarkable achievement by all concerned. We know that the next six trading weeks are crucial and so we are making plans accordingly.”
CLC is still recruiting for some key warehouse roles and most team members will be in residence in Sandycroft by January 2016. They report the partnership with Eden is going well.
