Hayneedle.com’s Rapid Growth Fuels Expansion

Third distribution facility to open in June 2017

OMAHA, Neb.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hayneedle.com,
a leading online retailer of indoor and outdoor home furnishings and
décor, today announced it is expanding its operations in Monroe, Ohio,
with a 994,000-square-foot fulfillment center to continue to position
itself for long-term, strategic growth.

The new facility, Hayneedle’s third overall and second in Monroe, will
bring over 100 new jobs to the area and increase the company’s national
fulfillment footprint to more than 2 million square feet. This expansion
is not only a testament to the company’s commitment to the city and
state of Ohio, but also to Hayneedle’s multi-year plan to meet growing
demand, maintain high levels of service to its customers, and support
the success of its own product lines.

“Our new state-of-the-art facility is the next step in Hayneedle’s
promise of providing the best online shopping experience for the home
space,” said Tom Clement, Vice President of Operations for Hayneedle.

The new facility is located just five miles from Hayneedle’s existing
721,000-square-foot Monroe facility, which will allow the company to
continue its high level of customer service. The hiring of associates at
all skill and experience levels begins immediately; the new facility
will open and receive its first shipment in June 2017.

“While we looked at other regional options, growing with the city of
Monroe will allow us to continue to tap into the region’s strong talent
pool, be good corporate partners to the community, and provide
first-class service to our customers, which is our ultimate goal,” said
Dave Woods, Sr. Director of Fulfillment for Hayneedle.

“For the past six years we have enjoyed the economic growth Hayneedle
has brought to the area and are excited they chose to continue to grow
and invest in Monroe,” said William Brock, City Manager of Monroe.
