True Value distribution center closing; up to 165 are affected

ALLENTOWN (AP) — True Value Co. has announced plans to close a regional distribution center in eastern Pennsylvania in November, affecting as many as 165 employees, amid plans to open another center in the commonwealth.

The (Allentown) Morning Call reports that the Chicago-based company notified state officials last month that worker separations are expected to begin in mid-October.

True Value spokeswoman Jennifer Born said the Allentown distribution center and a satellite office in Upper Macungie are more than 40 years old and have been running out of space, with nearly one-fourth of merchandise stored outside in trailers or off-site.

She said affected workers will be offered transition assistance and can apply for jobs at a new distribution center announced earlier this year about 60 miles away in Hanover Township, Luzerne County.

Comments
T2C, True Value is building a bigger facility 60 miles away. They outgrew their local facility. Maybe if you could read without rose colored glasses of hatred you would be able to understand. You hate President Trump so much you can not see straight. You are a left wing nut job with extreme mental dysfunction. Wise up. You are screwing yourself with stupidity. Here is yet another example of why you are the dumbest one to ever post on the TN site. MAGA. America is great. Every time you insult President Trump I am going to call you out and expose you for what you are. Keep it up.
