In 1992, after opening additional stores in Southern California, the com- pany opened its mail order division to provide dancewear nationwide under the name Discount Dance Supply. Mericle vice president Jim Hilsher coordinated the proj- ect. He said the Discount Dance Supply project is the latest example of the growth of E-Commerce fulfillment in NE PA. He said 20 of the top E-commerce companies have fulfillment centers in the region including Neiman Mar- cus, J.P.
