New Expansion of Jinny Beauty Supply in Chicago
On September 10th, 2021, Jinny Beauty Supply bought its newest building in Wheeling, IL. This building is a massive 309,749 square feet, which is the single largest building that the company currently owns and occupies.
Eddie Jhin, President of Jinny Corp, stated, “It saddens me that we will not be in our original Jinny Chicago building on Kimball Ave. That building brought us a lot of memories and it was in our family for many, many years. We are also closing down the Detroit operation after seven great years; it was not a good-feeling moment. The customers in Detroit have supported us so much since we moved there and I personally will always thank them so much.”
Our Largest Building – 309,749 square feet of warehouse space
Eddie Jhin added, “But we must learn to move on and keep looking forward. This new building in Wheeling will better service our Chicago, St. Louis and Detroit customers with a much bigger inventory selection, more inventory to hold, faster turnaround times for trucking shipments and deliveries, and overall, a better promotions for our customers.”
As always in the past, Jinny staff members are the very best in opening and closing down warehouses. They have successfully shut down three operations: one in Niles building (80,000 square feet), which was the Dream World operation; Kimball building (102,000 square feet), which was Jinny Beauty Supply; and the Detroit Jinny building (65,000 square feet) in less than 45 days. At the same time, the staff opened the massive Wheeling building for business by Monday, November 22nd.
“…better service for our Chicago, St. Louis and Detroit customers with a much bigger inventory selection.”
Eddie Jhin stated, “Our operational people are the best in this industry and they have a great system. They all worked very hard and precise. The entire Chicago staff, all of Jinny’s buyers, and other Atlanta operation personnel had to pitch in to get this epic job done. They have accomplished closing down three buildings and opened a new building all in less than nine weeks.”
Eddie Jhin added, “The last time we opened a new operation was 2017 in Cherry Hill, New Jersey and it felt great to see and know that we still have the drive and willingness to open another new warehouse.”
He added, “I am very proud of my people and I am very fortunate to have them as members of Jinny United. Jinny is a special company, we are made up of just ordinary people doing extraordinary things. I tell our people that they have done things in this industry that no one has ever accomplished in the past and I don’t think anyone in the near future can accomplish. Our company is not for those people who want to be average or just want to get by at work or in life. We push one another to be better in work and in life.”
OTC Beauty asked Eddie Jhin if there were any other expansion plans in the future. He mentioned, “For now, I think we need to concentrate on this new expansion building, making sure we are servicing our customers properly, creating a great working environment for Jinny United staff members and meeting the needs of our vendors to gain their trust even more.”
“We have learned a lot since the pandemic and one thing for sure is that we will always try to learn and grow our current status and be different than the others.”
