Waitrose have expanded their head office in Bracknell by take a whopping 30,000 square feet of office space. The location, Oldbury road (which is a Panasonic building), was sealed with the assistance of commercial property agents Jones Lang LaSalle.
Their present head office employs 2,000 staff and is spread over 7 acres. It is also the National Distribution centre for the company, and supplies food to around half of the company’s stores. This has been a very speedy transaction considering that the agents only received the request a few months ago.
The lease is for three years with a two years break, reflecting the need for flexibility in this uncertain economic climate.
