Pet Supplies Plus has opened a new South Carolina distribution center that will enhance the company’s distribution capabilities across the southeast, officials with the retailer said.
The 534,700 square foot facility located in the town of Orangeburg is the centerpiece of the company’s $54 million investment to enhance its distribution efforts. The new distribution center will service Pet Supplies Plus stores as well as the company’s recently acquired Wag N’ Wash stores.
“Opening our fourth distribution center in the U.S. is a pivotal moment for our brand, and one our team and the community of Orangeburg alike is thrilled about,” said Chris Rowland, president and CEO of Pet Supplies Plus. “While we grow on a national scale, we prioritize being engrained in each community we’re a part of. This will remain evident with the distribution center as we provide hundreds of jobs to those in South Carolina.”
The new facility will create more than 275 full-time and part-time employees. Orangeburg is located about 75 miles northwest of Charleston, S.C., and 120 miles north of Savannah, Ga.
Located in 42 states, Pet Supplies Plus and Wag N’ Wash have more than 700 retail locations across the country.
