Wilsonville, Oregon October 1, 2012 - Leading online linen retailer LinenTablecloth today announced that business operations at its new distribution and warehousing facility in Memphis, Tennessee will officially start on Wednesday, October 3.
The 82,500 square-foot facility triples the company’s inventory capacity and stocks the full of range of LinenTablecloth’s products from tablecloths to wedding decor, while continuing to work closely with its other warehouse and corporate office in Oregon.
“The location, size and expanded distribution capability this Memphis Distribution Center offers is just one of our strategic moves to clearly demonstrate our commitment to providing an unparalleled customer service and enhanced shipping experience,”said Ron Berrett, CEO of LinenTablecloth.com.
Once operational, the Memphis Distribution Center will allow LinenTablecloth to offer free 5-7 day shipping promotions to customers anywhere in the contiguous United States. No one else in the linen tablecloth industry currently has this capability.
Marketing Director Destry Brown, in a press release last July highlighted the impact of LinenTablecloth’s new location. “We are better able to meet the growing demands of our customers. The new facility enables us to increase inventory levels so orders can be fulfilled much quicker and products delivered faster,” he stressed.
The new distribution center is also a big win for Memphis. An established brand like LinenTablecloth moving into the area gives the local economy a real boost and shows that Memphis has the business climate companies are looking for.
“LinenTablecloth's growth required us to look for additional fulfillment space and this new location will enable more efficiencies in our business operations. These efficiencies support our goal to continue exceeding customers' delivery expectations while contributing to the economic viability of Memphis,” said Shane McBride, Manager for LinenTablecloth.com’s new distribution center.
According to him, the new distribution facility has 18 employees and that figure could go up. McBride also added that customers, depending on their proximity to the location, can also take advantage of the Will Call option for their orders. LinenTablecloth's New Distribution Center is located just 15 minutes south of downtown Memphis and 10 minutes west of Memphis International Airport.
