Way­fair LLC. says it’s open­ing its first Cana­dian de­liv­ery and ware­house fa­cil­ity in Mis­sis­sauga, Ont. The home goods e-com­merce re­tailer says the cen­tre will bring 200 jobs to the re­gion and it is look­ing to fill po­si­tions in man­age­ment, in­dus­trial engi­neer­ing and cus­tomer ser­vice. The cen­tre will be roughly 74,500 square me­tres (800,000 square feet) and aims to help de­liver home prod­ucts to Cana­dian cus­tomers faster. Vice-pres­i­dent of Canada and life­style brands Paul Toms says in a state­ment the fa­cil­ity will al­low the com­pany to move its heav­i­est and bulki­est items faster. Toms says the Bos­ton, Mass.-based com­pany will also in­tro­duce per­son­al­ized de­liv­ery op­tions and real-time de­liv­ery track­ing in some re­gions. Way­fair’s web­site of­fers more than 10 mil­lion home fur­nish­ing, decor and other items to cus­tomers.
