The new boss of department store chain Debenhams has unveiled plans to close its Lodge Farm distribution centre near Northampton along with 10 smaller in-house warehouses and put up to 10 stores under review.
The warehouse, operated by DHL, employs 220 staff and will shut in two years' time.
Debenhams say they hope to be able to redeploy many staff affected by the smaller warehouse closures.
Sergio Bucher, who took over as chief executive last October, outlined the overhaul that will see the group shut one of its three distribution centres.
Details of his plans came as the group announced a 6.4% drop in pre-tax profits to £87.8 million for the six months to March 4.
