Job news in Maumelle

Posted By on Tue, Dec 21, 2010 at 6:23 AM

Also from Stephens Media: Maumelle has approved a $42 million bond issue that apparently will allow reopening of the former Target distribution facility as a facility for Higbee, a department store chain owned by Dillard's. Which, one way or another, makes it a Dillard distribution center.

The Maumelle paper stole a march on Gov. Mike Beebe, who's scheduled a big job announcement in Maumelle Wednesday morning. The Dillard's distribution center could employ 400. Target employed about 500 when it announced the closure in January 2009.

This naturally brought to mind the promised Chinese pulp mill announced almost three years ago for Clark County.
