(Hebron, Ky.) - An internet retailer is creating more than 70 new jobs in Boone County.
Overstock.com recently opened a distribution and returns facility in Hebron. The facility will handle product returns and outbound shipments.
It’s the company’s first expansion from its primary warehouse in Salt Lake City, Utah. Overstock.com say the facility will reduce the time for resolution and refunds for customer returns, especially in the eastern U.S.
The new facility will create 22 jobs at first, but is expected to add another 50 jobs December.
"Speed to the customer is forefront on our minds," said Jonathan Johnson, Overstock.com's acting chief executive officer. "Overstock.com is investing in its supply chain to get product to and from customers more quickly and to remain customer-centric."
