Kudos to Macy's for not sending these jobs overseas as so many other businesses would be tempted to do so, and for Martinsburg, to boot

Yes, i agree, kudos. But i think they wanted a central place in the Mid-Atlantic Region so they can distrubute to Macy's stores in the Eastern USA. Good for the Eastern Panhandle!

It's a lot easier to out-source a call center than a distribution center. Should boost the local UPS and FedEx centers as well.

Ok, ok.. when I put that out, I was thinking of the phone-in the order or maybe internet/phone ordering system, not the actual distribution of the item. That, in itself, might be difficult to do from overseas, ...altho look where many clothing items are made

Instead of bulding an entire new building, how about using the old GM Plant, and just add on the additional space that they will need? It's really sad to see that huge building go to waste like it is......just a thought. -mmccul
