Conn's, Inc., a specialty retailer of home appliances, consumer electronics, computers, and lawn and garden equipment, announced that it began operating its new 150,000-square-foot distribution center in the Dallas/Fort Worth market in early September. The new center is located between Dallas and Fort Worth in Carrollton, Texas. The new facility replaces a cross dock that the company previously used for home delivery distribution operations since it initially expanded into the Dallas/Fort Worth market over 20 months ago. Conn's new distribution center will enable the company to serve an even broader area of north Texas with the capability to serve a 200-mile radius. Conn's has retained its existing facility for its Dallas Metroplex service center.
Conn's Chairman and CEO, Tom Frank, stated, "This new center is the culmination of a distribution plan that we began when we entered the Dallas/Fort Worth market nearly two years ago. This move is a result of our concentration of stores in this area and the growth that we have experienced in that market."
The company now operates four regional distribution centers in Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, and Beaumont, Texas, and three cross docks located in Austin, Texas, Harlingen, Texas, and Lafayette, Louisiana. Conn's also announced the opening of its twelfth store in the Dallas/Fort Worth market with plans to open more stores in the future in Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, South Texas, and other locations.
