NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Department store owner Dillard's is laying off 125 workers in Nashville as it moves online fulfillment to a central Arkansas center.
WPLN radio reported the Little Rock, Ark,-based retailer notified the state it will end the local jobs by the end of summer.
Dillard's spokeswoman Julie Bull said the newest fulfillment center is bigger and closer to company headquarters. The company has operated a fulfillment center in Nashville since it bought Castner Knott in 1998.
Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development spokesman Jeff Hentschel said the department has scheduled a meeting with affected workers and will help them look for new jobs.
