Construction has begun on the state-of-the-art distribution center that is located in the 265-acre Hewson-Olive Branch Distribution Center in the Memphis suburb of Olive Branch, MS.

Once completed, the facility will be used for distribution of goods to Williams-Sonoma retail stores throughout the country. In the near term, the center will distribute to both the retail stores and directly to Williams-Sonoma’s customers through purchases made via print catalog and the company’s website. Williams-Sonoma is an upscale kitchen and home furnishing company.
