A company based in Ohio that sells high-end home furnishings and lighting is eyeing a new shipping hub in southern Dallas County. Arhaus, which had its first public stock offering late last year, sells a line of furniture, lighting, floor coverings and housewares that it designs and obtains from manufacturers around the world.
The company has 77 showrooms in more than two dozen states, including Dallas’ NorthPark Center and in Fort Worth. The company also has significant e-commerce sales. Arhaus just added 230,000 square feet of space to its office and distribution center outside Cleveland. And in its most recent quarterly earnings announcement, the company said it plans “to open another distribution facility in the western U.S. in 2022.”
Arhaus is planning to open a new distribution and shipping facility on Cleveland Road near Interstate 45 in Hutchins, according to documents filed with the state. The more than 490,000-square-foot warehouse designed by Pross Design Group will be located in Interchange 20/45, a business park built by Seefried Industrial Properties and USAA Real Estate that totals more than 800,000 square feet. CBRE Group has been marketing the big warehouse to tenants.
Arhaus is the latest big consumer products company to put a major fulfillment center in southern Dallas County. Wayfair has a large shipping hub in Lancaster and Amazon has multiple distribution facilities along Interstate 20 in the area’s industrial district.
