Wilkes-Barre, PA – TheFerretStore.com, a leading on-line pet supply retailer, broke ground today on an expansion project that will add 7,500 square feet to the company’s distribution center.
“This year we’ve added a substantial number of SKU’s and experienced constant growth in sales over last year. Needless to say, our distribution center is at its capacity and with the upcoming holiday, we’re going to need that extra space” said Scott Sanfilippo, Chief Operating Officer. “It will also help us to continue to provide our customers with fast order turn-around, more unique product offerings, and superior customer service.”
Earlier this year, the company added a complete line of dog, cat, small animal and bird products to its offering, clearly focusing on the company’s growth and expansion into the online pet supply market. “We added many, many products to make TheFerretStore.com a one-stop-shop for pet owners… and those products quickly filled whatever empty space we had in our distribution center,” commented Sanfilippo.
When complete, the company’s distribution center will have an additional four loading docks and two drive-in loading areas. The project is expected to be complete in early December.
