(CTVNews) The Hudson’s Bay Company has spent more than $60 million in upgrades to its Toronto distribution center, including the addition of a state-of-the-art robotics system that it says should speed up the delivery of products to customers. Products that may have taken 2 1/2 hours to locate and ship under the traditional manual system should now be out of the warehouse within 15 minutes, the company said.
At an unveiling of the technology, CEO Jerry Storch said it was like moving on from “an abacus to a MacBook Pro.” Founded in 1670, Hudson’s Bay operates more than 470 stores under banners such as the Bay, Lord & Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue, Gilt, and OFF 5TH. It also owns Galeria Kaufhof, Galeria INNO and Sportarena in Europe.
