Hy-Vee is closing its Eagan fulfillment center in the Twin Cities area in May – impacting about 320 workers. Company spokeswoman Christina Gayman says some fulfillment employees will be transferred to its grocery stores to continue filling its online services there.
“Several dozen from each fulfillment center will go back to store level in those markets to be part of the Hy-Vee Aisles Online teams at the stores. Since we are moving fulfillment back to the stores, we’ll need those people in the stores to help us fill orders.”
Hy-Vee will stop filling online orders at its fulfillment sites the week of March 23, but Gayman says workers can help with the transition through May 6th.
