SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSTK) announced plans to open a warehouse in Kansas City, Kansas, with distribution from the facility expected to begin in October. The new warehouse is strategically positioned to allow Overstock to offer two-day ground shipping to more than 99% of customers in the contiguous United States.
“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 vice president of 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.”
Overstock has leased the full 517,000-sq.-ft. 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.
“We are thankful for the support we’ve received from the Kansas Department of Commerce as we have expanded our supply chain to include the new facility in Kansas City,” continued Morale. “This warehouse is another step towards continuing to strategically expand our two-day shipping lanes throughout the country and decrease delivery times for customer orders.”
The opening of Overstock’s newest warehouse coincides with the retailer’s annual Anniversary Sale. During the sale, customers will receive deep discounts on its top-selling products, while members of Overstock’s Club O Loyalty Program will also receive access to additional preferred customer perks and 10% rewards on select products alongside the everyday free shipping and 5% rewards on all purchases they already enjoy as members of the loyalty program.
