(Fredericksburg) -- A Crayola warehouse in central Pennsylvania is closing.

The crayon maker is closing a 550,000-square-foot distribution center in Bethel Township, Lebanon County. About 70 employees will lose their jobs, starting Jan. 18.

Crayola is moving the operation to the Majestic Bethlehem Center, making it the first tenant in a $40 million, 800,000-square-foot site on what was formerly Bethlehem Steel property.

Crayola has its main headquarters in Easton, Northampton County.
