The Tile Shop Opening $1.1M Distribution Center in Martinsville, Virginia

The Tile Shop is investing $1.1 million in a warehouse distribution center in Martinsville, Virginia, creating 25 jobs. The company provides natural stone, ceramic and porcelain tiles, and tiling materials.

"Henry County, Virginia, provides an excellent location for The Tile Shop's expanding East Coast retail stores, including the four stores currently in Virginia, because of the unique combination of international container ports and domestic logistics up and down the Eastern seaboard," said Joe Kinder, supply chain manager for The Tile Shop.

The Virginia Tobacco Indemnification and Community Revitalization Commission will extend $80,000 in Tobacco Region Opportunity Funds for the project. And the Virginia Department of Business Assistance will help train workers through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
