Darvin Furniture & Mattress has expanded its Mokena Distribution Center as part of its response to consumer demand for in-stock items and the growing need for additional storage. With the added capacity there’s also been a need for more employees to run the facility, located just nine miles from the Orland Park showroom.
The recent expansion at the Darvin Distribution Center, 19111 Darvin Drive in Mokena, has increased storage capacity by more than 30% at the facility, which will help Darvin store an enormous amount of furniture and mattresses available for its customers.
“While the pandemic has caused all kinds of shortages for businesses across Chicagoland, we made the decision early on to add more capacity for storage as a way to minimize the potential negative impact of manufacturing and shipping delays,” says Darvin Furniture & Mattress President Will Harris. “Since we have added all the capacity, we have focused on filling it up and making sure our customers can get immediate delivery on most of the items in our showroom.”
“As a part of the additional space at the Distribution Center, we are also producing more local jobs. We are currently looking for people to step into the new positions that have been created,” says Harris. “It’s an exciting time to be here at Darvin. We recently celebrated our one-hundredth anniversary, while also managing to grow our business significantly during the pandemic.”
With a single showroom location in Orland Park, Darvin Furniture & Mattress is Chicagoland’s largest furniture store and one of the country’s Top-100 furniture retailers, ranked right alongside multiple-location stores from across the nation.
