Blog: British Corner Shop opens European DC as it tackles Brexit and Covid challenges — Retail Technology Innovation Hub – Retail Technology Innovation Hub

Jon Farrar, Head of Marketing at British Corner Shop, say: “Expanding our warehouse space is a crucial step in our growth strategy, so we can continue to support the expat community at a time when they need us the most. “

“We have seen an influx of customers shopping online for both essentials and nostalgic items and the expansion of our warehouse space into Europe will have a massive impact on the speed and efficiency of our operation.   

“The opening of our new warehouse means that we’re able to increase the product range available to our European customers whilst also significantly reducing our delivery timescales to EU countries.  

He concludes: “We’re thrilled to be able to once again serve our loyal customers, and in return we have ensured that all European Union orders will be free of any additional customs fees or duties.”

“We have had to adapt very quickly to the changes brought on by both Brexit and the Covid-19 lockdown and are excited to be taking this swift expansion in our stride.”
