Leading Online Retailer BabyAge.com Expands to Meet Growing West Coast Demand
WILKES-BARRE, Pa., Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Every parent knows just how quickly their babies and toddlers outgrow their gear – which might explain why they don’t like to wait for their online purchases to arrive. With that in mind, online retailer BabyAge.com is expanding its distribution capabilities to serve parents across the country even better. President Joseph C. Sponholz today announced the opening of the company’s new West Coast distribution center, at a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Henderson, Nevada.
The new facility comes in response to ever-growing demand from parents in western states, and is part of the online retailer’s mission to offer the best possible service to all customers. The new facility will allow the company to improve service and response times to nearby customers – all without any changes in shipping or service fees – effective immediately.
“BabyAge.com has experienced significant growth in recent years thanks to our great value and personalized service,” said Sponholz. “And with the growing demand from parents in California, Washington, Nevada and beyond, we knew it was time for a dedicated hub that would allow us to serve them even better. Our Henderson center will do just that, ensuring that 97% of our customers receive their products in three days or less.”
Added Somer Hollingsworth, CEO and president of the Nevada Development Authority, “Having BabyAge.com expand into Nevada is great news for our state and economic diversification efforts. We are pleased to have played a role in the growing online retailer’s move here and are excited about its future expansion plans.”
Opening with a core team, BabyAge.com plans to grow the Henderson distribution center as the company continues its strategic expansion into the western U.S. The company will serve customers from its headquarters in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
