OGDEN -- CSN Stores, LLC, the nation's third-largest online retailer of home goods, is slated to begin occupying 80,000 square-feet of space in April in a leased building in Business Depot Ogden.
The building is located at 550 S. Depot Drive., Chuck Casto, a spokesman for CSN, said in an e-mail to the Standard-Examiner.
Steve Waldrip, an official with The Boyer Company, which manages BDO, said the building is just north of a facility that houses Scott USA.
CSN decided to locate in BDO because the business park is ideal for the company's future plans, Casto said. "We chose this area based on the space that was available, in addition to the flexibility of the space to accommodate future expansion for both the distribution and customer service centers."
Founded in 2002, CSN comprises more than 250 different shopping sites under the company's umbrella. Websites include Luggage.com, Cookware.com, AllModern.com and BedroomFurniture.com.
The building that CSN Stores will occupy encompasses 106,000 square feet, enabling the company room for expansion, Waldrip said.
Williams International, a manufacturer of small gas turbine engines, currently occupies the building but plans to relocate and consolidate its operation with its facility at Ogden-Hinckley Airport, he said.
About 50,000 square feet of the CSN building will be used as a warehouse, while 30,000 square feet will serve as a customer call center, Waldrip said.
CSN will fit in well with other businesses already operating at BDO, said Waldrip. "It's a great company and a great addition to the area."
The city of Ogden and Boyer evenly split profits derived from the lease of buildings at the 1,200-acre complex.
Within its first four years in operation, CSN reached sales of $109 million and has continued to grow ever since, according to the Governor's Office of Economic Development. In 2010, CSN's sales surpassed $375 million.
During the next two years, the company plans to create up to 266 full-time positions at its Ogden location. Another 597 jobs are expected to be added over the next decade.
The city isn't providing any cash incentives to CSN but will offer infrastructure improvements and allowances for office furniture and fixtures, valued at between $50,000 to $100,000.
CSN will be investing $1.5 million in its Ogden facility and will pay more than $2.7 million in state taxes over the next decade, according to GOED. Tax incentives from GOED will be paid as jobs are created.
