boohoo.com expansion to create 360 Burnley jobs

Online fashion retailer boohoo.com is continuing its expansion plans with the creation of 360 jobs at its distribution site in Burnley.

boohooThe company has contacted Burnley Council with plans for a 102,500 sq ft extension to the existing distribution building and a four-storey amenity facility of 30,500 sq ft.

The extension would double the size of the company’s Heasandford Industrial Estate premises and take staff numbers to 785. Further plans reveal boohoo.com’s hopes to take this figure to more than 1,000 by 2015.

Burnley MP Gordon Birtwistle told the Lancashire Telegraph: “These are jobs which will be suitable for all ages, jobs in warehousing, order picking, in the offices. Jobs which will be suitable for all kinds of people. It is fabulous news for Burnley and shows that we are still booming.”

boohoo.com is based in Manchester and recorded a turnover of £67m in its most recent accounts. The land has been owned by parent company Wasabi Frog for more three years.
