 Directions

In 2015 the fourth Nebraska Furniture Mart in the United States opened in The Colony, Texas. The furniture and more store boasts 560,000 square feet of retail selling space supported by an attached 1.3 million-square-foot warehouse. NFM’s total sales reached $750 million within the first year of business in Texas. In 2017 Robert Pfeiffer, Distribution Center Manager for NFM, spoke to the North Texas Chapter of APICS about the “final-mile” tracking and delivery service features. In 2018 we have the unique opportunity to tour the 1.3 million square foot warehouse and see the behind-the-scenes operation that allows NFM to have your sofa loaded on your truck within 10 minutes of purchase.

The tour is scheduled for 1 p.m. on March 1, 2018 and is limited to the first 20 registrations. Registration is limited to APICS members until Feb 15th.

Those interested in having lunch prior to the tour can meet at Hard Eight BBQ around 11:30 a.m. Comfortable close toe shoes are required as the tour will cover a good portion of the more than 29 acre warehouse.
