Macy’s Ready To Fulfill

Macy’s is ready to open its fulfillment center in Berkeley County. The large retailer will hold an invitation-only ribbon cutting Wednesday morning in Martinsburg.

Construction on the distribution center took less than a year. The 1.3-million square foot facility was actually completed back in April but the company has spent the past couple of months on the finishing touches.

The first wave of hiring has already taken place. Once the distribution center is running at full capacity, there will be more than 1,000 people employed there. That brings with it an annual payroll of $32 million.

Berkeley County Development Authority Executive Director Steve Christian said back in May, "It’s amazing! It’s a beautiful, huge, new facility and it’s state of the art. We just couldn’t be more proud to have it here in Berkeley County, West Virginia."

Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin and others will be on hand for the 10am ribbon cutting.
