OGDEN -- Wayfair LLC has finished construction on a 100,000 square-foot warehouse in the Business Depot Ogden -- a move the company and Ogden city officials say will bring more than 150 jobs to the area in the next year.
Located at 550 S. Depot Drive in the BDO, Wayfair initially opened its doors in Ogden in late spring of 2011. When the company opened, 200 employees were hired and a 50,000 square-foot warehouse was built.
Since that time, Wayfair has experienced rapid growth, creating over 330 jobs at it's Ogden location in just 24 months.
"Wayfair is a great partner and its vision offers the perfect example of our city's ability to allow creative people with great ideas to succeed," Ogden Mayor Mike Caldwell said.
Wayfair is the number one provider of home goods on several top marketplaces, including Amazon, Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Barnes & Noble.
