Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has announced that thredUP, a leading online marketplace for consumers to buy and sell secondhand women’s and children’s clothing, will establish a distribution and warehouse operation in Gwinnett County. This project represents the creation of more than 300 new jobs in the metro Atlanta area.

“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 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 No. 1 state for business."

thredUP is an augmented marketplace that specializes in the buying and selling of women’s and kids secondhand apparel. The company will retrofit and upgrade an existing facility at 2670 Breckinridge Blvd. in unincorporated Gwinnett County. The newly created jobs will include a range of positions including inspection, quality assurance and inventory and HR management.

“We’re excited to put down roots here in Duluth and to have access to the area’s tremendous high-quality workforce as we build out our team,” said John Voris, Chief Operating Officer of thredUP. “By opening new distribution centers in strategic locations across the country, thredUP is able to increase processing capacity, while also offering faster shipping transit times and more localized, seasonally relevant inventory.”

With the opening of the new distribution centre, thredUP will expand its Southeastern presence to better serve a rapidly growing customer base.

“We are excited that thredUP has selected metro Atlanta for its expanded operations,” said Metro Atlanta Chamber President and CEO Hala Moddelmog. “Our region’s strength as an innovation and logistics hub and leading universities will be critical assets as thredUP seeks to fill key creative and technology positions and reach new customers. Congratulations to Gwinnett County on this great win.”

San Fransisco headquartered thredUP pioneered the Clean Out Bag, the most convenient way for consumers to sell clothes they’re no longer wearing. It accepts clothing from more than 25,000 women’s and kid’s brands and resells the items for up to 90 per cent off the original retail price. (SH)
