                                                 Staff celebrate new name


Staff at Shop Direct Group’s National Distribution Centre in Shaw, are celebrating the unveiling of their new name.


Littlewoods Shop Direct Group, the UK’s leading online and home shopping retailer, has changed its name to Shop
Direct Group and is re-branding all its sites.


The 23-acre site plays the central role in the company’s distribution network. Comprising five buildings, three of
which are converted former cotton mills, the 950,000sq ft of floor space is in use for around 100 hours a week. The
site employs between 750 and 1250 staff according to the season and is run by General Manager, Andrew Sinfield.
Last year Shaw processed over 39 million customer orders.


A second site at the Raven Mill in Chadderton, just six miles away, processes customer returns for the Group. The
210,000sq ft building sits on a four-acre site and employs over 1000 staff. In 2006, it received a significant
investment in new computer systems and equipment.


A third site at Middleton, employs over 200 staff, and processes all large item customer returns such as furniture and
washing machines. Both of these sites are also re-branding.


To mark the occasion the company is holding a competition to give away several iPODS at each location.
