IKEA to build distribution depot next to Croydon store

Ikea has unveiled plans for a new storage and distribution depot in Croydon.

The Swedish furniture giant is to build two new warehouses at the site of a former plastics factory next door to its store in Waddon.

It plans to demolish Stewart House in Waddon Marsh Way, the former home of Stewart Plastics, as well as a second building occasionally used as a training centre.

The proposed warehouses are designed to address "a significant under-provision of storage space within the current Ikea store" and cut down the number of deliveries needed to restock the shop itself.

One of the warehouses will serve as a customer collection point for pre-bought bulky items.

Ikea said the number of trucks leaving the store on home deliveries would not increase.

The plans are set to be approved by Croydon Council's strategic planning committee on Thursday December 5.
