​​LEWISVILLE - Bed Bath & Beyond has leased almost 800,000 sf of warehouse space northeast of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The new facility will employ between 600 and 1,000 people who will fulfill online merchandise orders for Bed Bath & Beyond.

Bed Bath & Beyond — which has more than 1,500 brick and mortar stores — said last year that it intends to significantly expand its online sales, which account for only about 10 percent of its business.

The nationwide retailer looked at locations across North Texas before selecting the Majestic Airport Center DFW business park on SH 121.

The building opened last year and is owned by Majestic Realty and Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance.

Majestic is developing two more warehouses in the 200-acre project that will add another 850,000 sf.

Bed Bath & Beyond is just the latest retailer to expand its online sales distribution footprint in North Texas.
