Ascena Retail Group Plans New DC for 2014

Ascena Retail Group's 760,000-square-foot distribution center expansion will distribute apparel and accessories for all of its brands, including Justice & Brothers, Lane Bryant, maurices, dressbarn and Catherines. The facility will employ 500 associates over the next five years -an additional 200 jobs to the area.

"Breaking ground on this expansion is a milestone for our business," Ascena's president and CEO David Jaffe said. "Not only is central Ohio considered a hub for distribution, but the centrality of this location will allow us to deliver 70 percent of our 3,800 stores within two days."

Gray Construction Company is managing construction, which should be completed in early 2014.
