Harry & David Expanding Ohio DC

According to MultiChannel Merchant magazine, Harry & David will be adding 45,000 sq.-ft. to its Hebron, OH-based distribution center facility. The $16 million expansion will be completed in fall 2008.

To receive a $351,000, seven-year, 45% tax credit from the state, Harry & David must maintain a presence in Hebron for at least 14 years and keep its current workforce of 225. The company said it expects to add about 160 new full-time jobs to the DC, with an annual payroll of approximately $4 million.

The Hebron facility shipped more than 3.6 million gifts last year, about 1 million more than Harry & David's Medford, OR-based headquarters.
