Nebraska Furniture Mart, the CE, white-goods and home furnishings emporium, is expanding its already massive retail footprint by building out its Kansas City distribution center.
The company plans to add 360,000 square feet to its existing Kansas City warehouse, which is adjacent to Nebraska's two-year-old megastore. The expansion, which was necessitated by greater than anticipated sales volume, will feature 100 docks and 3 million cubic feet of storage capacity.
Besides the warehouse expansion, plans are also afoot to revamp the company's information-only Web site, www.nfm.com, which promises to add online sales capabilities next year.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
