(Hebron, Ky.) - A national retailer is planning to slash more than 300 jobs in northern Kentucky.
Gap, Inc. announced Wednesday it'll close two distribution centers in Hebron by the end of June, eliminating 350 jobs, WCPO-TV reports. A spokesman said the closings are part of Gap's strategy to streamline distribution and make products more available to customers.
Gap will work with employees in the coming months to help as many employees as they can find new jobs, the company spokesman said.
Two other Gap facilities in Hebron will remain in operation with 150 employees keeping their jobs. Those are the Gap National Recovery Center and Dolwick Logistics Business Center.
