Wayfair, a major U.S. online home-furnishings retailer, has opened its first Canadian warehouse and delivery facility, and it’s right here in Mississauga.
The 800,000-square-foot facility is located at 2020 Logistics Dr., in the area of Bramalea Road and Derry Road East.
The facility will employ 200, and the company is currently hiring for all positions, including management, warehouse, concierge, industrial engineering and customer service.
The company says the new location will support the growth of Wayfair.ca and help with faster delivery of its merchandise, which includes home furnishings, decor and home-improvement products.
“We are excited to expand our team with the addition of 200 new jobs in the greater Toronto region as we expand our proprietary logistics network to create the best possible shopping experience for home,” Paul Toms, Wayfair’s vice-president, Canada and Lifestyle Brands, said in a news release.
“Our new facility will allow us to provide faster delivery for even the heaviest and bulkiest items, as well as innovative features such as personalized delivery options and real-time day-of-delivery tracking in select regions.”
