The company is expected to invest $60 million in the Nuuly fulfillment center and create 750 jobs within five years.
The company plans to locate its fulfillment and laundry facility at the Raymore Commerce Center, developed by VanTrust Real Estate and marketed by Colliers, pending completion of all state and local approvals and agreements.
Nuuly is a subscription rental clothing service for women who love fashion and exploring how to wear, buy and sell it in ways that are gentler on the planet — and their wallets. Nuuly offers over 15,000 styles from over 300 designer and contemporary brands, including Free People, Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie.
URBN’s new Nuuly facility represents a growing presence in the Kansas City region. In 2020, the company announced its plans to establish a $403 million, 1.5 million-square-foot omni-channel fulfillment center in Kansas City, Kansas, which celebrated a ribbon cutting in October 2022.
The Kansas City region is a leading North American logistics hub and key location for distribution and e-commerce, with abundant access to rail, air, water and road transportation. As the crossroads of North America, 85% of the U.S. population can be reached from a Kansas City location in two days or less.
