Online merchant expands
The Decorating Centre Online (DCO) has acquired an additional 10,500sq-ft unit in Durham. The company recently reported a sales growth of over 300%.
The new facility is an addition to the existing Coundon-based store.
Helen Goddard from the company said “The new premises will give us the capacity to allow the business to double in size over the next three years while improving our service to more professional decorators from the surrounding Durham and North Yorkshire area“.
Officially opening its doors from October 4, 2021, the unit boasts a modern design trade counter, complete with coffee shop-style bar, paint mixing and colour matching as well as housing e-commerce warehousing, which is already operational.
The expansion has also meant more employment opportunities with the business in the process of recruiting an additional three full time members of staff to its growing 22-strong team by the end of the year.
