"Today's acquisition reflects our continued commitment to growing DSW in the future by opening stores, expanding our DSW.com business and by adding new accounts to our Affiliated Business Group (formerly the Leased Business Division)," stated Mike MacDonald, President and Chief Executive Officer of DSW Inc. The company recently completed the $15 million installation of an automatic sortation facility in the distribution center to support its size replenishment program. Mr. MacDonald continued, "Purchasing the property secures our investment and ensures our ability to expand into additional office space to support DSW's continued growth."

DSW had previously leased approximately two thirds of the property included in the purchase. The acquisition is expected to be slightly accretive on an annual basis, resulting from rent savings and income from existing tenants.
