Ames to close Ohio DC
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, December 3, 2001
Ames will close its Columbus, OH, distribution center in an effort to streamline its distribution network. Approximately 450 employees will be affected.
Stores serviced by the Columbus facility will be supported by the DC in Leesport, PA. Ames' two other DCs — in Mansfield and Westfield, MA — will continue operations.
Earlier this month, Ames announced the closure of 16 stores, which were serviced by the Columbus facility. The stores began liquidation on Nov. 25 and will close in early 2002.
