Stage Stores Announces Plan to Streamline Supply Chain

Stage Stores, Inc. (NYSE:SSI) announced that, as part of a plan to increase the efficiency of its distribution network, the Company will close its distribution center located in South Hill, Virginia by the end of fiscal 2017. The Company operates three other distribution centers in Texas, Ohio and Nebraska. Operations from the Virginia distribution center will be transferred to these facilities.

Michael Glazer, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We have made the strategic decision to consolidate operations across our distribution network, resulting in the closure of our facility in South Hill, Virginia. Our other distribution centers have ample capacity to service all of our department store and off-price locations as well as providing our e-commerce fulfillment, enabling us to streamline our distribution network and enhance efficiency. The South Hill distribution center associates have always risen to meet the needs of our stores and guests, and we are very proud of their contribution. We thank them for their dedication to Stage Stores.”

The Company will offer the affected employees separation benefits, including severance, outplacement service and career counseling.
