Superdrug has announced plans to move its head office to a new location in central Croydon.
The health and beauty retailer will begin the move to Bedford Park, which is close to East Croydon mainline station, in early 2017. Spread over six floors, the new 50,000 square foot building will support the future growth of the business.
Superdrug moved to its current site in the town’s Beddington Lane in 1979. While its depot operations have since been relocated to new purpose build facilities outside of London, the office still houses all head office functions for stores and the online business.
The company said the new office will create a “collaborative” environment for the 500 staff working there. It has also been designed to promote working practices that support healthy lifestyles, sustainability and the Superdrug’s CSR policies.
Jo Mackie, Superdrug HR director, said: “After almost 40 years based at Beddington Lane this is a huge move for the business. While our current office has served the business well this move gives us the opportunity to create a more agile work space. This will allow us to give our stores and customers the support they need to ensure we continue to grow and continue to offer the best health and beauty experience on the high street and online.”
