Shein, a global online retailer of fashion, beauty and lifestyle products, has opened a new corporate office and distribution facility in the greater Toronto area of Canada. The 15,795m2 facility is situated in Markham, Ontario, and will allow the company to better serve customers across the country.
In a press release, Vito Zhong, general manager of Shein Canada, commented: “We’re excited to continue to call the greater Toronto area home while creating new jobs in the community. Our new facility will help us cut shipping times for Canadian customers and reduce the number of packages in the international shipping stream – delivering on two of our key business priorities.”
Shein Canada plans to create approximately 200 corporate and warehouse jobs by the end of 2023.
The opening follows a recent announcement that the company will expand its US warehouse in Whitestown, Indiana, and open a new facility in Wroclaw, Poland. Shein is also set to open two new facilities in the US in 2023.
Shein was founded in 2008 in Nanjing, China. The company ships to 220 countries worldwide and became the world’s largest fashion retailer in 2022. The company relocated its headquarters to Singapore in early 2022.
