LuLaRoe, a national provider of women’s and men’s clothing, is locating a new distribution center in Richland County. The project is expected to bring approximately $35 million of new capital investment and create at least 1,000 new jobs over the next few years.
Founded in 2013 by DeAnne and Mark Stidham in Corona, California, LuLaRoe clothing is sold by more than 80,000 Independent Fashion Retailers throughout the United States.
Located at 2000 Carolina Pines Drive in Columbia, S.C., the company’s new facility is expected to be operational by June 2017. Hiring for the new positions is already underway, and interested applicants should send resumes to email@example.com.
“LuLaRoe recognized an immediate need to open an East Coast distribution facility to better serve Independent Fashion Retailers located east of the Mississippi, by providing them with easier access to product and reduced shipping times. After evaluating our options, we selected South Carolina because of its central location and strong workforce to support our company’s growing needs. We look forward to becoming a member of this great community and welcoming our future workforce into the LuLaRoe family.” –LuLaRoe CEO Mark Stidham
“Our state has made a name for itself as a place where companies, both big and small, want to do business. When a company like LuLaRoe decides to move here and create 1,000 jobs, it signals to the world that South Carolina is open for business, and we look forward to watching the success we know this great company will have here.” –Gov. Henry McMaster
“South Carolina is a great location for companies trying to transport products to markets across the globe. The 1,000 new jobs this investment is bringing will make a real difference in Richland County, and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for LuLaRoe.” –Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt
“Richland County is thrilled to welcome LuLaRoe to our community. The addition of these quality new jobs is another example of the results of investing in our infrastructure, schools and neighborhoods.” –Richland County Council Chair Joyce Dickerson
