Online video game renter GameFly has opened a new distribution center in the Tampa, FL, area to better serve members in the Southeast.
Online video game renter GameFly Inc. has opened a new 10,000-square-foot distribution center in the Tampa, FL, area to better serve members in the Southeast. The company also has warehouses in Los Angeles and Pittsburgh.
GameFly says its plan is to serve video game renters in Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi more quickly. The company has been criticized on several gaming blogs for overshooting its 2- to 4-day delivery promise.
“We are continually optimizing our service to provide the best possible experience for our members,” says Dave Hodess, CEO at GameFly, No. 260 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide. “The GameFly team was very strategic in selecting the location of the Tampa warehouse in order to ensure the most efficient delivery throughout the region,” he says.
