Saks Fifth Avenue said it would terminate a third of its workforce, or 223 employees, at its Aberdeen distribution and order fulfillment center starting in late May, the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation said Tuesday.
Harford County facility will handle distribution of merchandise to Saks Fifth Avenue and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF5th stores, Bentley said.
Saks is providing separation packages and re-employment assistance to affected workers, she added.
Hostess Brands, the maker of Twinkies, told state officials that it would end operations at its Waldorf location if the company could not emerge from Chapter 11 bankruptcy. An end to operations would affect 158 workers.
