Five Below and NFI open South Jersey Distribution center
Pedricktown, NJ — Five Below, the trend right, extreme value retailer catering to pre-teens, teens and beyond, and supply-chain company NFI, are pleased to announce the grand opening of an over one million s/f distribution center in New Jersey.
Five Below will initially occupy 700,000 s/f of the 1,015,000 s/f facility in Pedricktown.
Five Below and NFI broke ground on this real estate development project in September of 2014.
The companies worked closely together throughout the short nine-month construction period to ensure all aspects of the building would be ready for operations this summer.
This will function as Five Below’s core eastern U.S. distribution center, servicing over 300 retail store locations in the region, with room for growth.
This new distribution center offers fresh economic growth to the area, bringing an estimated 100 jobs to the township over the next few years.
The new warehouse will house three miles of conveyor equipment and 2,500 tons of steel racking to support year-round operational need.
“NFI is excited to continue to work with Five Below to leverage supply chain efficiencies,” said Jeff Brown,
NFI president and vice chairman. “The opening of this distribution center, on such a tight time-frame, is a testament to the partnership we have with Five Below and the support we have received from the community in Oldmans Township.”
