COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. — Max Finkelstein Inc. has opened a distribution center in Colonial Heights to help improve service to customers in southern Virginia, including the Richmond metro area.
The cross-dock-design facility spans 116,500 square feet with 34 loading dock doors. The distribution center will operate multiple shifts, providing delivery services and will-call pick-up Monday through Saturday, MFI said.
The facility is MFI's second in Virginia — the other opened in 2017 in Winchester — and 15th overall.
"We are excited to finally have a presence in Richmond, a strategic market with a successful customer base, while also allowing us to service surrounding markets in southern Virginia, including Norfolk and Newport News," Brian Finkelstein, vice president of sales, said.
The warehouse, located near the State Route 620 exit on I-95 south of Richmond, "further strengthens our distribution network in the Mid-Atlantic region, and ensures that we can best serve our customers in Richmond and the surrounding markets throughout the southern half of Virginia," Sean Franciscus, director of supply chain, said.
Astoria-based Max Finkelstein is a family-owned and -operated company.
