Macy's has revealed plans to relocate its West Sacramento fulfilment centre to a larger facility in Sacramento County to support continued sales growth driven by its omni-channel strategy.

The move of the 92,000 sq ft direct-to-consumer centre to a 385,000 sq ft facility around ten miles away is due to begin this summer and is expected to create around 100 new jobs. The multi-million-dollar upgrade will include building modifications and the latest technology in both material handling equipment and warehouse managing systems.

RB Harrison, Macy's chief omni-channel officer said: "The rapid growth of Macy's direct-to-customer shipments, rooted in our omni-channel approach to business, requires us to continue to strategically add fulfilment 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."

With corporate offices in Cincinnati and New York, the company operates around 840 stores in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico, under the names of Macy's and Bloomingdales, with fiscal 2013 sales of US$27.931bn.
