CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- ProFlowers, a leading online merchant of flowers, has opened their new Charlotte distribution center.
The 12-year-old company provides over 150 varieties of fresh cut flowers to millions of satisfied customers throughout the United States.
"We chose Charlotte over other major cities in the Southeastern U.S. because of its location and it is a high growth area. We are excited to be a part of this city and to be a part of its business community," said John Kuehn, senior vice president of supply chain operations, ProFlowers.
ProFlowers, a Provide Commerce brand, launched its marketplace in 1998 to sell and deliver fresh cut flowers for everyday and special occasions such as Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother's Day, birthday and anniversary events, through its Web site, www.proflowers.com.
The company's platform combines an online storefront, proprietary supply chain management technology and established supplier relationships to create a market platform that bypasses traditional floral supply chains of wholesalers, distributors and retailers. The company offers additional gift options through its other brands RedEnvelope, Cherry Moon Farms and Shari’s Berries.
