Hallmark To Open Southeastern US Distribution Center in Clayton

National retailer Hallmark is expected to confirm within a few days they will open a southeastern US distribution center in Clayton. Hallmark is reportedly planning to lease space in the former Winn Dixie warehouse on Guy Road , off US70. It remains uncertain how soon the Kansas City-based company plans to occupy part of the facility, or how many jobs it will create. The warehouse was opened in 1997, but closed in 2004, resulting in the layoffs of several hundred Winn Dixie employees. Two years ago, Smithfield Foods leased a portion of the facility. A logistics firm, Kuehne and Nagel, leases another part of the warehouse. Hallmark currently has two other distribution centers in the United States , in Connecticut and Missouri .
