Myer has secured a 10-year lease on a new 40,000 square metre facility in Victoria as its national distribution centre for both stores and online fulfilment.

Located at an industrial estate in Ravenhall, Victoria, the build will be a state-of-the-art facility holding over 100,000 SKUs with several automation solutions. Construction is underway and Myer expects to begin using the DC in a phased approach from August 2022.

The DC is expected to provide centralised fulfilment for stores ensuring stock is priortised for stores with the highest sell through to maximise sales and reduce markdowns.

For the online business, it is anticipated that up to 70% of fulfilment will be performed at the new site for improved customer service levels, operational efficiencies and reduced cost per order.

Myer brand partners will also have access to the DC facility to take advantage of the efficiencies and services.
