Tipperary Sales, d.b.a. La-Z-Boy Southeast, is set to open a new distribution facility by early February of 2018 that will service the award-winning company's eight home furnishings and décor stores located in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. The project is an investment of more than $8 million that will bring 30 jobs to York County.
"We are pleased that our company's recent growth and continued success enabled us to embark upon this project in York County," states Martha Brown, President & CEO, La-Z-Boy Southeast. "This facility will allow us to better service our existing eight locations across the southeast and position us for continued future growth. We look forward to working with and employing citizens of York County, who offer a variety of talents and capabilities that will encourage future accomplishments."
The building, nearly twice the size of the company's current distribution center in in Richburg, will be located in the Riverwalk Business Park at Paragon Way and Cel River Road in Rock Hill. Initial plans include 126,360 square feet, which can be expanded to 182,520 square feet on a 16.38-acre site. Phase one of the build will include 6,000 square-feet dedicated to a regional call-center and executive and operational offices. The facility will also offer customers the option to pick-up furniture purchases instead of receiving delivery.
"We were pleased to identify this location for La-Z-Boy Southeast," states Byron Brown, partner and broker-in-charge, Caliber Partners. "With stores across the southeast and a growing interior design clientele, the proximity to the I-77 corridor will allow for more efficient inventory delivery services. The location will serve the business today and well into the future."
Recognized by La-Z-Boy, Inc. as one of its premier dealer-operated organizations in North America, La-Z-Boy Southeast offers more than the iconic recliner. In-store products include a variety of stationary and motion furniture pieces along with ottomans, rugs and accessories. Each La-Z-Boy Southeast location also offers complimentary design services through a degreed interior designer, who is able to furnish a customer's entire home.
