Life Style Sports has announced the development of its new 120,000 sq ft Distribution Centre, located in the Aerodrome Business Park – west Dublin, is nearing completion ahead of a projected opening in Spring 2022.

The new Distribution Centre will be the first fully carbon neutral facility of its kind in Ireland, and will serve two primary purposes: speedily delivering orders to over 200 countries worldwide via an enhanced e-commerce offering, and quickly replenishing stock in Life Style Sports’ 44 outlets across the island of Ireland.
