The expanding business based in Northwich, Cheshire, has agreed a new three-year lease with a break in 2015 on the 109,747 sq ft (10,195.88 sq metre) premises at Stretton Distribution Centre.

Details of the amount of rent per sq ft to be paid by The Hut Group were not disclosed.

The property has been extensively refurbished and completely re-clad and includes two-storey office accommodation.

Julien Kenny-Levick, Director, Logistics and Industrial at the North West office of real estate advisors Colliers International in Manchester, secured the letting to The Hut Group on behalf of Carmel Southend Limited, the landlord of Stretton Distribution Centre.

He said: “The Hut Group is one of the North West’s most ambitious and entrepreneurial businesses and this renewed commitment to a strategically positioned distribution hub is indicative of its ongoing success.”

Stretton Distribution Centre is one mile from the M6/M56 interchange and directly accessible via a new expressway. Manchester and Liverpool are 30 minutes drive-time away and more than 60 per cent of the UK population lives within a four hour drive of Warrington.
