Waitrose who are owned by the John Lewis Partnership are planning to close a warehouse in Enfield, London putting 545 jobs at risk.

The warehouse will likely close this summer after opening in 2020 as the lease end in 2025 and the company are looking at two other sites.

JLP has launched a consultation process to partially close the warehouse in Enfiled.

A Waitrose spokesman said: “With rental costs at Enfield due to increase and capacity elsewhere in our network, we are considering the closure of the site.

“While not an option we’re exploring lightly, the proposal would maintain our high levels of customer service for Waitrose.com and support future growth.

“It’s in no way a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our team.

“No decision will be made until we have fully consulted with all partners at our Enfield site, who are being supported throughout the process.”
