Shein, the global online fashion and lifestyle retailer, announced it will open a Seattle-area office in downtown Bellevue, expanding its U.S. footprint. The nearly 10,000-square-foot office space at Bellevue’s Key Center will serve as a hub for Shein’s U.S. fulfillment and logistics as the company continues to localize and support speedier delivery times for American customers.

“The U.S. is an important market for Shein, and we are thrilled to establish a presence in the Seattle area as we continue enhancing our fulfillment process and improving the customer experience,” said Andy Huang, Shein’s head of U.S. fulfillment and logistics. “This expansion underscores our commitment to efficiency across our operations, and we look forward to contributing to the local community and fostering innovation in the heart of the Pacific Northwest.”

The company anticipates hiring over 50 employees in logistics and distribution to work from the new space by the end of 2024, joining its U.S. team of over 1,500 corporate and warehouse employees in Los Angeles, San Diego, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Whitestown, IN.
