Economic Development: CSN Stores Coming to Ogden


KSL reports that the online retailer CSN Stores will bring 266 jobs to a new distribution center that will be located in Ogden:

The Governor's Office of Economic Development Thursday announced Boston-based CSN Stores LLC will open a new western U.S. customer care operation and distribution center in Ogden.
CSN Stores is the third-largest online retailer of home goods in the nation, with more than 250 different shopping sites including Luggage.com, Cookware.com, AllModern.com and BedroomFurniture.com.
In 2010, the company's sales grew more than 50 percent, surpassing $375 million, according to a news release.
During the next two years, the company will create up to 266 full-time positions in northern Utah. Also, new worker training will be provided to CSN employees by the Utah Department of Workforce Services and the Applied Technology College resulting in up to 163 new full-time jobs in the next decade.
In addition, to those positions, up to 700 additional jobs will be developed over the 10-year life of an incentive agreement with the Governor's Office of Economic Development.
 This is great news for Ogden!
