(Hagerstown, Md.) -- PetSmart Incorporated says it's closing a distribution center in Hagerstown that employs more than 50 people.
The Phoenix-based company will begin a gradual shutdown of the warehouse July 24th. The company says the center will cease operations July 27th and close completely by September 15th.
PetSmart says it's closing the Hagerstown center and another in Gahanna, Ohio, to consolidate Northeastern distribution operations in Bethel, Berks County.
The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation says the closure affects 56 workers.
A PetSmart spokeswoman says the center had a work force of about 100 employees in February. She says about 20 percent of those employees have transferred or are in the process of transferring to the Bethel distribution center.
