Chicago Tribune February 21, 2021
Online home goods retailer Wayfair is opening a fulfillment center in Romeoville that is expected to employ more than 250 people.
The 1.2 million-square-foot facility will help the company “further scale our excellent shopping experience to meet the needs of our rapidly growing customer base in the greater Chicago region and across the U.S.,” Wayfair COO Thomas Netzer said in a news release Friday. Construction is scheduled to start this spring and the facility is expected to open in 2022, said the Boston-based company, which has facilities in South Elgin and Carol Stream.
Wayfair plans to begin hiring in Romeoville in the second half of 2022. The company said the facility could eventually employ nearly 500 people, including part-time and seasonal workers.
