Sacramento, CA - January 22, 2015 - Macy’s, Inc. announced today that it has chosen the Capital Commerce Center in south Sacramento County to house its newest goods fulfillment center. Macy’s plans to invest $10.5 million in capital improvements in the center, which will provide 175 full-time equivalent jobs, including at least 100 full time positions. The new facility will handle distribution and fulfillment of direct-to-consumer purchases from Macy’s online stores.
“This is a huge step toward revitalizing the Franklin Boulevard neighborhood,” said District 2 Sacramento County Supervisor Patrick Kennedy. “We are proud to partner with Macy’s in order to bring quality jobs back to south Sacramento.”
Sacramento County competed with several locations throughout the United States to land the new Macy’s facility. The County’s Office of Economic Development and Marketing negotiated an incentive package based on job creation. Macy’s will use the County’s Fast Track Program to expedite the entitlement process. The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will review the project for approval at a public meeting on January 27, 2015.
“The rapid growth of Macy’s direct-to-customer shipments, rooted in our omnichannel approach to business, requires us to continue to strategically add fulfillment capacity so our customers can receive their orders quickly and efficiently. Customers today are shopping whenever, however and wherever they prefer – via stores, desktops and mobile devices – and we continue to invest to meet the customer demand,” said R.B. Harrison, Macy’s, Inc. chief omnichannel officer . “We are choosing to expand and invest in Sacramento County, based on the quality of the workforce and the outstanding support we have received from the local community.”
Hackman Capital Partners purchased the Capital Commerce Center, which formerly housed the Campbell’s Soup plant, in December 2013. Since that time, they have leased 261,000 square feet to three industrial tenants. In addition, Sacramento County has invested $4.1 million in projects in the surrounding neighborhoods, including new landscaping, roadway improvements, and enhanced bicycle and pedestrian access.
“Sacramento County is an excellent location for goods fulfillment centers,” said County Executive Bradley Hudson. “We welcome Macy’s to south Sacramento and are committed to continuing the improvements we’ve worked so hard on for the past several years. We’d also like to thank our partners with SACTO, SMUD and the State of California for helping us make this happen.”
