JEDCO to spend as much as $1.1 million helping company expand distribution center operations and hopefully creating over 100 new local jobs

(Continued)

JACKSONVILLE —

As part of the arrangement, the Houston-based company must maintain the 93 jobs already being performed at its current distribution center in town and add 106 additional jobs by Dec. 31, 2015.

At present, the company's existing distribution center serves Beall's, Goody's, Palais Royal, Peebles and Stage Stores.

The expanded facility would help distribution for Steele, the company's off-price stores and e-commerce website business, among other ventures.

The company currently distributes all merchandise to its stores through three distribution centers located in Jacksonville, South Hill, Va., and Jeffersonville, Ohio.
