Citi Trends

Citi Trends Distribution Center

Citi Trends Fashion for Less is a value priced family apparel retailer with over 200 stores in the southeast, mid-Atlantic region and Texas.

Citi Trends' success as a value retailer resulted in the need to expand their original distribution center in Darlington, SC. The original DC utilized a very manual flow through process with little on-site storage other than work-in-progress, which caused accuracy and productivity to be less than desired. Bastian needed to keep the original system operational while expanding and improving operations.
