HauteLook Chooses San Bernardino County for Major Relocation and Expansion
Online Retailer to Move Into 604,000-Square-Foot Distribution Center this Fall
SAN BERNARDINO, CALIF. – Nordstrom-owned HauteLook, the California casual-chic online shopping destination hosting daily limited-time, limited-inventory sale events, has announced it will relocate and expand to Glen Helen Distribution Center located at 17335 Glen Helen Parkway in San Bernardino in the County of San Bernardino, Calif. HauteLook signed a 10-year lease and will occupy the entire 604,000-square-foot building. The move will more than double HauteLook’s space from its current 300,000-square-foot Fontana location. HauteLook plans to be fully operational in its new space by September 2013.
“The County has proven to be a strong location for our operations. That’s why we’ve not only decided to remain here but looked to expand our fulfillment center operations significantly. We get the benefits of a strong labor force and we’re close enough to our Fontana facility that our existing team members won’t have a substantial change to their commutes,” said Terry Boyle, President of HauteLook.
Completed by developer/owner, Alere Property Group in mid-2012, the newly constructed property includes approximately 2,000 square feet of office space and is situated on 30 acres of land. The state-of-the-art building features 32′ clear heights, ESFR (Early Suppression, Fast Response)sprinklers, and high-profile I-15 Freeway visibility. The space will be used for HauteLook’s inventory storage, fulfillment and returns processing.
“There is a growing trend within the County of San Bernardino for major retail brands and e-commerce companies to expand their operations, taking advantage of our quality stock of industrial real estate and in some cases building new, high quality developments,” said Kelly Reenders, economic development agency administrator, County of San Bernardino. “Our focus is to bring new companies here as well as work closely with existing firms to provide them with the resources to help them to thrive, add to their workforce and further build upon their success.”
In addition to HauteLook, Amazon.com moved into a 950,000-square-foot warehouse late last year and is planning on adding another 515,000 square feet to its facility. Some of the other significant relocations and expansions in the County include Trident Case, BMW, MCS Industries and Lollicup USA, Inc., among many others.
