Large furniture and non-food wholesaler Stax Trade Centres will this week open its sixth national depot and its second north of the border.

Its new 80,000sqft Glasgow branch — situated on the Queenslie Industrial Estate — will officially open tomorrow morning (17th September) with an event attended by Sky Sports presenter Hayley McQueen.

Stax has invested £5m — before stock — on the Glasgow site, which joins Stax’s other Scottish cash and carry depot in Edinburgh.

The wholesaler’s other depots are situated further south in Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and Bristol. Stax, which sells cabinet furniture, kitchens and a comprehensive programme of other non-food goods, grew 2013–14 sales by 8 per cent to just under £106m.
