Area Development Online News Desk (10/08/2013)
An online discount retailer that sells a broad range of products including furniture, rugs, bedding, electronics, clothing, jewelry and cars, Overstock.com, opened its new distribution center in Jonestown, Pennsylvania.
The new facility will allow a faster fulfillment of orders by taking advantage of a state-of-the-art warehouse while providing room for growth, the company said. Shipping products from the Jonestown facility will provide orders to customers from Maine to Florida within two days of order shipment.
"We are focused on the quick and efficient delivery of products to our customers at the best prices possible," said Overstock.com Chairman and CEO, Patrick M. Byrne. "With the addition of this new Jonestown warehouse, Overstock.com can now provide even faster delivery to our eastern United States customers."
Overstock said initially the Jonestown warehouse brings 15 jobs to the area, with additional jobs forthcoming as operations scale over the next few years. Overstock.com's primary warehouse will remain in Salt Lake City, Utah.
