In January 2017, Winstanley acquired 300 Shaker Road in Enfield, CT as part of our growing Logistics & Distributions portfolio. The property is a 445,600 square foot high-image distribution facility featuring 48 foot clear heights, super flat floors, racking with more than 35,000 pallet positions in place, abundant loading, and other key amenities such as redundant systems.
The facility is 100% occupied by Advance Stores, Inc. which is the largest automotive aftermarket parts provider in North America. Headquartered in Roanoke, Virginia, the company operates approximately 5,100 Advance Auto Parts retail stores, 126 Worldpac branches and serves approximately 1,300 independently owned Carquest branded stores in the U.S., Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Canada. Advance Stores invested significantly in this facility to ramp up distribution to its northeast businesses and improve product availability for customers along the East Coast.
Enfield is well situated, midway between Springfield, MA and Hartford, CT, and it is strategically located off of I-91, central Connecticut’s primary north-south corridor connecting Hartford, New Haven and points south with Vermont & western Massachusetts. I-91 also intersects MA I-90 providing direct east-west access into Boston, MA and upstate New York via Albany.
