GoTextbooks Acquires-Upgrades Little Rock, Arkansas, Warehouse
The 276,694-square-foot facility, located at 7200 Interstate-30, will house more than one million textbooks for direct textbook sourcing.
“We are excited about the jobs, revenue and growth opportunities that GoTextbooks will bring to our state.” CFO of GoTextbooks, Matt Summitt, said. “We are proud to grow this business in Arkansas. GoTextbooks will be able to serve students across the nation while positively impacting a multitude of local Arkansas people and businesses as well.”
In June, GoTextbooks announced that it will serve as Chegg Inc.’s new textbook fulfillment and operations provider. Over the past few months, the company has begun the process of relocating the newly acquired textbook inventory and is currently making significant improvements to its primary warehouse at the Port of Little Rock.
“We are delighted by the economic opportunities that GoTextbook’s expansion, and their partnership with Chegg, will offer central Arkansas,” added Secretary of Commerce Mike Preston. “GoTextbooks has been a respected member of the Little Rock business community for years, and I’m confident that their business will continue to flourish in the future because of their unchanging commitment to support students first.”
“The best compliment we receive as a community is when a local company is expanding and they choose Little Rock for that expansion,” said Jim Cargill, 2022 Chairman of the Little Rock Regional Chamber. “The regional workforce and business climate in Central Arkansas will continue to support the growth of GoTextbooks for years to come.”
