Macy’s, Inc. plans to invest $35 million to expand its Goodyear, Arizona, distribution center for online orders, adding 360,000 square feet to its 600,000-square-foot facility, with plans to create 125 jobs. Macy’s facility already has 500 full time associates, which does not include seasonal employees hired for the holiday season.
“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 omnichannel strategy, we can access the total inventory of our company for every customer,” said R.B. Harrison, Macy’s, Inc.’s chief omnichannel officer.
“Macy’s has been a great corporate citizen, community partner and major employer these past five years,” added Mayor Georgia Lord. “Macy’s is one of our most critical corporate anchors. Their expansion demonstrates Goodyear is continuing to grow and we’re ready for businesses to grow with us.”
