New Jersey company relocates to Alabama

SECAUCUS, N.J. (AP) - The Children's Place Retail Stores Inc. says it will relocate its e-commerce business to Alabama in June, affecting 350 jobs in New Jersey, where the unit is currently based.

The children's clothing retailer said Thursday that online sales have grown by 60 percent this year and the company has outgrown its space in its Secaucus headquarters building.

The company will move the business to its Southeast distribution center in Fort Payne, Ala. Employees were informed of the decision this week.
