Overstock plans to open a warehouse in Kansas City, Kansas, with distribution from the facility expected to begin in October.
The new warehouse is said to be strategically positioned to allow Overstock to offer two-day ground shipping to more than 99% of customers in the contiguous U.S.
Overstock has leased the full 517,000-square-foot warehouse located at 5300 Kansas Avenue and plans to immediately integrate the new warehouse into its outbound delivery supply chain, including moving top-selling products from its core inventory and strategic partners into the facility. Eventually, the company will expand the facility’s functionality to include returns processing and expects that the Kansas City warehouse will create more than 100 jobs for the local community within the next two years.
“Overstock.com has always focused on finding ways to continually offer our customers the best possible shopping experience, including their delivery and post-delivery needs,” said Carroll Morale, Overstock’s vp/supply chain. “Integrating the new Kansas City warehouse to our existing supply chain network will help us provide faster shipping to our customers just in time for holiday shopping, delivering an improved customer experience alongside the products in every order.”
