Coastal.com Opens U.S. Production And Distribution Facility

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coastal Contacts Inc. ("Coastal.com") (Nasdaq:COA) (TSX:COA), the leading online retailer of vision care products, has opened its first U.S. production and distribution facility.

Driven by growing U.S. demand and Coastal.com's continued efforts to revolutionize the eyewear industry, this new U.S. facility reinforces the Company's commitment to provide the best online experience for buying glasses.

Coastal.com will be able to ship orders within 24 hours after an order has been placed on the Coastal.com website because the production takes place in this modern, state of the art facility which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week, staffed with 70 employees. The facility is designed to scale up, including plans to add more positions throughout the year as consumer demand fuels growth.

"The United States is our fastest-growing market, as evidenced by an increasing number of new and returning customers purchasing glasses from us every day," commented Roger Hardy, Coastal.com's founder and CEO. "With our new U.S. production and distribution facility, we will be able to accelerate this growth by offering the same great quality and even faster service to our expanding U.S. customer base, which aligns with our overall strategy for continued expansion."

David Bailey, operations manager for the new U.S. facility, commented, "Our skilled team is excited to be part of the Coastal family. We continue to change the way people buy vision care products and look forward to additional expansion as we appeal to a broader U.S. audience."
