Ulta is building-out a facility in the Park 295 Industrial Park in Northwest Jacksonville.

Ulta Beauty Inc. said Aug. 27 it is accelerating the opening of its Northwest Jacksonville e-commerce center, but didn’t say when it would start operations other than it would be this year.

WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports that in its second-quarter earnings report, the Bolingbrook, Illinois-based beauty supplies company said it “continues to take actions to manage the business in response to COVID-19.”

According to an Ulta news release, one way is:

“Accelerating the opening of its Jacksonville fast fulfillment facility, increasing order processing capacity in existing distribution centers, and expanding ship-from-store capabilities to an additional 100 stores, all to increase shipping capacity in support of continued strong e-commerce sales.”

Eileen Ziesemer, vice president of public relations, said Aug. 27 the company is not disclosing an exact opening date.

“But we are on track to be operational to support higher levels of e-commerce demand this holiday season,” Ziesemer said.
