"Selecting Kansas City as the home of Overstock's newest fulfillment center allows us to offer over 99% of our U.S. customers two-day shipping options, improving shopping experiences by getting orders into the customer's hands as soon as possible," said Overstock.com Vice President of Supply Chain, Carroll Morale. "We're extremely thankful for all of the support and collaboration we've received from state and local officials and the Kansas City Area Development Council during this expansion process."
