New York -- Macy’s announced that it will expand its online order fulfillment center in Goodyear, Ariz., to accommodate continued sales growth as part of the company’s omni-channel strategy. The company is expected to invest more than $35 million in capital in the project.
The Goodyear facility, with 600,000 sq. ft. of space, was built by Macy’s Inc. and opened in spring 2008. The expansion will add an additional 360,000 sq. ft. of space. Construction is expected to begin this summer so the expanded facility, with a total of 960,000 sq. ft., can be operational in spring 2014.
“Our online fulfillment centers, as well as the 500 Macy’s stores that will be equipped to fulfill orders by the end of 2013, handle customer orders placed online, as well as ship products to customers who shop in stores that may not stock the specific product they need. Through our omni-channel strategy, we can access the total inventory of our company for every customer,” said R.B. Harrison, Macy’s chief omni-channel officer.
