RETAILER EXPANDS OPERATIONS WITH NEW WAREHOUSE
While Organize-It has always focused on the rapid processing and shipping of internet orders, the new building provides the space for even greater efficiency. The warehouse facility allows Organize-It to maintain greater levels of stock that will ensure the availability of items, and a systematic layout of products expedites the process of filling orders and minimizes the time between a customer placing an order and receiving their products. 'We have a system in place that will significantly improve our productivity by allowing us to process more orders in less time, which benefits all of our customers,' said Nylen. 'We hope to exceed customer expectations by having most internet orders filled and shipped within 24 hours.'
Initially Organize-It will only use approximately 80% of the new facility, which will provide them the space necessary to continually add new and innovative items to an already impressive assortment of products. Should more space be needed in the future, the building sits on a 2.5 acre lot that would allow Organize-It the freedom to expand the existing structure.
The new warehouse will also provide logistics and merchandise for Organize-It's retail location in Shelby Township, Michigan. Most of the more than 4,000 products carried by the specialty retailer can be found in the store, which also includes a custom closet showroom where closet experts use a computer program to create a closet to fit any space or budget, that Organize-It will then build and install. 'Currently we are the only retailer in the state specializing in a unique selection of products covering the storage, organization, closet and home office markets,' said Nylen.
As an independent retailer, Organize-It opened their doors in 1997, specializing in the sale of storage and organization products of all shapes and sizes. In addition to operating a 9500 square foot retail location in Shelby Township, MI, with a custom closet and office furniture showroom, Organize-It has a popular web site www.organizeit.com that features thousands of innovative products ranging from kitchen gadgets to intricate shelving systems for closets and garages.
