Pepper Streamlines Distribution
J.W. Pepper plans to open two new distribution centers in Salt Lake City and Atlanta in March and May, respectively, to better serve the company’s retail and print music operations.
Pepper has been distributing product through 15 locations. The new distribution centers will consolidate fulfillment and allow remaining locations to focus on regional marketing. Glenn Burtch, president of J.W. Pepper, said that “these new facilities will make use of current best fulfillment practices, taking advantage of advancements in today’s warehousing and shipping technology.”
All existing Pepper locations will remain open except for the Detroit branch, which will be absorbed by the Grand Rapids, Mich., location.
