Urban Outfitters to open new ecommerce fulfillment centre

Urban Outfitters, Inc., a leading lifestyle specialty retail company operating under the Anthropologie, Bhldn, Free People, Terrain and Urban Outfitters brands, is set to relocate its Trenton, South Carolina ecommerce fulfillment centre to Gap, Pennsylvania.

Construction of the new one million square foot fulfillment centre is expected to be completed by July 2015. The new, highly automated facility will significantly increase the company’s fulfillment capacity, supporting strong direct-to-consumer growth for many years to come. The location of the facility, adjacent to the existing URBN retail distribution center, will create increased efficiencies across the URBN supply chain and noticeably improve order delivery time, enabling next day delivery into the important Northeast region, Urban Outfitters said in a statement.

Richard Hayne, Chief Executive Officer Urban Outfitters said, “Our Trenton workforce has provided key support for our exceptional direct and wholesale growth over the past nine years. We thank them and hope many will decide to stay with the company as we move to Gap, PA.”

“As online sales continue to surge, our new facility places us in closer proximity to a large percentage of our direct customers and allows us to service them faster and more efficiently,” he added.

Urban Outfitters, Inc. is an innovative specialty retail company which offers a variety of lifestyle merchandise to highly defined customer niches through 238 Urban Outfitters stores in the United States, Canada, and Europe, catalogues and websites. (GK)
