Rooms To Go Plans 902,000-square-foot Warehouse in Wilson County, Tennessee
The furniture company will locate its new facility in Lebanon’s Cedar Farms, an industrial building developed by Al. Neyer and New York Life Real Estate Investors, an investment division within NYL Investors, a wholly owned subsidiary of New York Life Insurance Company. The Wilson County facility will be the company’s first outlet store in Tennessee and will give Rooms To Go easy access to three interstates and convenient delivery to 39 million people within 300 miles of Nashville. Rooms To Go will utilize the 902,000-square-foot facility as a furniture warehouse and will add an additional 40,000 square feet, which will serve as a retail outlet.
“We are extremely excited about our new distribution center and outlet store in Wilson County, and we really appreciate the help and support of the state and county economic development officials who made this possible,” Rooms To Go CEO Jeffrey Seaman said.
“The visibility and access of our new facility to a major Interstate are tremendous benefits to Rooms To Go and to our customers. This location will not only help us speed up deliveries and better serve our customers in Greater Nashville, it also will serve as a hub for our expansion in the mid-south,” Seaman added.
“Tennessee’s central location and easy access to eight interstates make it a perfect location for Rooms To Go to locate its new warehouse and retail outlet. I appreciate their commitment to our state by creating 200 new jobs in Wilson County and I look forward to seeing the company continue to grow and succeed,” Governor Bill Lee said.
“Currently Rooms To Go employs 7,000 employees globally and 115 employees in Tennessee at its retail operations. I thank Rooms To Go for more than doubling its employment in our state by creating 200 new jobs in Wilson County and I appreciate the company for choosing Tennessee to locate new operations,” added Bob Rolfe, Commissioner of TNECD.
“The project not only provides career employment opportunities, but also accelerates retail growth along Interstate 840.” Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto said.
