Congratulations to our partners in Kansas City, Kansas on the announcement that Overstock.com, one of the world’s largest online home goods and furniture retailers, will open a new distribution center. The company has leased a 517,000-sq.-ft. facility at 5300 Kansas Avenue, which will begin outbound order fulfillment operations in October and will eventually expand operations to include returns processing. Overstock expects that the Kansas City warehouse will create more than 100 jobs for the local community within the next two years.

The addition of the strategically positioned Kansas City warehouse allows Overstock the ability to offer two-day ground shipping to more than 99% of customers in the contiguous United States.
