DALLAS - Stitch Fix, a San Francisco-based online retailer, is setting up a major distribution center at 1421 N. Cockrell Hill Rd. The 316,000-sf center is slated to open in June.

Stitch Fix, which has an office in Austin, employs over 200 stylists in the Dallas region. In addition, the company plans to hire 400 to 500 employees for the new facility, with plans to continue to grow the team further in 2016.

The e-commerce company’s new distribution center will support Stitch Fix’s expanding business in Texas and the southern region of the country.

“Stitch Fix has a strong presence in Texas and the decision to locate our third distribution center in Dallas was an easy one,” said Stitch Fix Chief Operating Officer Mike Smith.

“We have always had many clients in Texas, so when we thought about where in the country we wanted to expand, it felt like a natural fit for our company and our culture.”

Stitch Fix provides an online personal styling service for women and sells apparel by mail. The company was founded in 2011 and has grown to more than 1,500 employees.

Stitch Fix is just the latest e-commerce firm to expand in North Texas. In 2014, Chicago-based Trunk Club bought a building east of downtown Dallas in Deep Ellum to house workers for its nationwide men’s apparel sales operation.
