A spokesperson for the EWM Group said:
The decision to move to Carlisle was not taken lightly or quickly, but EWM Group is expanding and our current premises in Langholm are not capable of supporting a modern, fast-growing, national retail development.
Langholm has played a critical role in our company's history and heritage, and we will be retaining our headquarters building there.
We have ambitions to turn the building into a heritage centre which celebrates the role that both Edinburgh Woollen Mill and textiles has played, and continues to play, in Scotland."
The date of the move will be on or around 30 July 2018.
