Our Belk Supply Chain organization is growing rapidly! We made considerable progress last year in streamlining our supply chain to more efficiently provide merchandise to our customers. The Jonesville, SC eCommerce fulfillment center that opened in 2012 has been expanded from 500,000 to 840,000 square feet of space with an investment of approximately $33 million. This year, Belk will invest an additional $27.5 million to continue building out capabilities to support our growing eCommerce business.
Store fulfillment expanded from 17 to 48 store locations that filled both item locator and belk.com orders. We plan to further expand both our item locator and store fulfillment efforts this year.
We also made great strides in improving the stability and performance of our belk.com website and began the planning for a new digital commerce platform with enhanced order management capability to replace the current website.
As you can see, we’re moving and growing quickly to serve the needs of our customers. Come join our growing Supply Chain team at corporate or in our distribution and fulfillment centers!
