Amazon isn’t the only e-commerce retailer who is expanding its distribution sector.
Secondhand clothing company ThredUp just opened its fourth distribution center in Duluth, Georgia. The new facility will bring 300 new jobs to the metro Atlanta area and foster local economic growth.
“We viewed 20 buildings in the Atlanta area before choosing the facility in Gwinnett County. We’ve chosen Duluth, Georgia, because we believe its location is ideal for us to continue to improve the ThredUp experience for our customers in the southeastern region,” said ThredUp chief operationg officer John Voris.
ThredUp’s three other distribution centers are located in San Leandro, California, Vernon Hills, Illinois, and Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. The new facility will contain inventory from the likes of Anthropologie, Banana Republic, Gap, J. Crew and Lululemon. It will also speed up Clean Out Kit processing and other logistical operations for the company’s southeastern U.S. consumers.
“ThredUp’s decision to grow its business here in Georgia is a direct reflection of our first-rate workforce and the ease of access we provide to the company’s online customer base,” said Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. “These are critical components for innovative companies like ThredUp to continue growing. I am confident ThredUp will benefit from the wealth of resources that make Georgia the number one state for business.”
