amlogo.gifNews broke today that Amazon.com will shutter three distribution centers around the United States, a move that will cut or transfer around 210 jobs within the company.

The Wall Street Journal (subscription only) reports that the warehouses were located in Munster, Indiana; Red Rock, Nevada; and Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. A spokesperson said the company restructured thinking about “future growth.”

Here’s more from Bookseller: “The 215 workers at the three warehouses slated for closure will get a minimum of 3 weeks severance pay, according to Amazon spokesperson Patty Smith, who said ‘eligible’ workers will be offered the chance to transfer to other US distribution centers.”
