LuLaRoe Locates Distribution Hub In Columbia, South Carolina

LuLaRoe, a national provider of women’s and men’s clothing, is locating a new distribution center at 2000 Carolina Pines Drive in Columbia, South Carolina.

The project is expected to bring approximately $35 million of new capital investment and create at least 1,000 new jobs over the next few years in Richland County.

Founded in 2013 by DeAnne and Mark Stidham in Corona, California, LuLaRoe clothing is sold by more than 80,000 Independent Fashion Retailers throughout the United States.

“LuLaRoe recognized an immediate need to open an East Coast distribution facility to better serve Independent Fashion Retailers located east of the Mississippi, by providing them with easier access to product and reduced shipping times. After evaluating our options, we selected South Carolina because of its central location and strong workforce to support our company’s growing needs. We look forward to becoming a member of this great community and welcoming our future workforce into the LuLaRoe family,” said LuLaRoe CEO Mark Stidham.

“Our state has made a name for itself as a place where companies, both big and small, want to do business. When a company like LuLaRoe decides to move here and create 1,000 jobs, it signals to the world that South Carolina is open for business, and we look forward to watching the success we know this great company will have here,” said Governor Henry McMaster.
