Once you place an order, you won't have to wait long to try on your new clothes or play with your new gear. Our shipping department moves 5,000 to 6,000 orders out the door daily, and 97% of orders are shipped within 24 hours.
In an average year, the Sierra Trading Post fulfillment center ships more than 2 million packages containing over 7 million pieces of merchandise. All of these packages combined weigh 12 million pounds. That's equal to 16 Boeing 747s!
Today, our fulfillment center boasts 348,000 square feet of storage space, and we’re expanding! In April 2015, we broke ground on addition to our current Fulfillment Center on Campstool Road in Cheyenne. When it’s complete – sometime in the fall of 2016 – we will have doubled the capacity of the current structure.
The state-of-the-art warehouse facility was designed with energy conservation in mind. When solar-powered skylights measure incoming light as "sufficient," a computer chip turns off more than 180 overhead lights so we can use as much natural light as possible. Motion detector lighting is used in picking areas, so an aisle is only lit when one of our pickers is working in the area.
Our expansion project will include those energy conservation measures and add a significant number of jobs to the local economy.
