Spencer’s TV & Appliance will move its headquarters to the Akimel Gateway project at the southwest corner of the Loop 202 and 40th Street in January.
Spencer’s has been a Valley staple for nearly 50 years, and the site will provide the company with greater access to the Phoenix metro area. Trammell Crow is the project developer, and WESPAC is the general contractor for the construction of the building.
“The Valley has grown up with Spencer’s during the nearly 50 years we’ve been in the appliance business,” said Rick Biederbeck, the president of employee-owned Spencer’s TV & Appliance. “When you’re serving customers to the east in Mesa and Gilbert and to the west in Glendale, Goodyear and Arrowhead, a site that provides access to the greater Phoenix metro area is a must.”
Spencer’s TV & Appliance employs more than 250 people across all locations. The headquarters will include a 319,000-square-foot distribution facility.
“The facility will expand Spencer’s capacity to accommodate the more than 600 deliveries that Spencer’s makes each day with a 38-dock door warehouse facility,” said Dennis Reilly, Spencer’s TV & Appliance chief financial officer.
In addition to the new headquarters, Spencer’s TV & Appliance will open its 11th retail store at Camelback location on 21st and Camelback Road in early July. The space was previously occupied by Half-Price Books. For more information, visit spencerstv.com.
