Hayneedle.com Continues Growth,
Opening Expanded Omaha-Based Customer Care Center This Summer

pr-use wrote:Hayneedle.com, a leading online retailer of home furnishings and lifestyle products based in Omaha, today announced plans to open a new, expanded and state-of-the-art Customer Care Center on June 28, 2010. The new Hayneedle.com Customer Care Center will be located at The Chalco Tech Center, 13831 Chalco Valley Parkway, Omaha, NE 68138. The new, 28,000 square foot Hayneedle.com Customer Care Center doubles the company's sales and service capacity, which is currently located at Hayneedle.com's Corporate Headquarters on I Street in West Omaha.

Hayneedle.com recently hired 40 new summer associates for its Customer Care Center. When operational in late June 2010, the new Hayneedle.com Customer Care Center will flex from non-peak season employment of 100 sales and service associates-- dubbed "Hayneedle.com Variety Experts" -- to more than 250 full-time and seasonal associates during the company's historically busy fourth quarter holiday shopping season.

Hayneedle purchased by Jet. Com

Wonder what this really means for Omaha and Hayneedle? Jet.com is not even a year old.

When executives from New Jersey-based e-commerce company Jet.com came to Omaha to check out Hayneedle, they said they liked what they saw.
So much so that the 7-month-old Jet required hardly a couple months’ worth of consideration to decide to buy the 14-year-old Omaha-based company, executives from both organizations told The World-Herald on Friday.........................
For the record  NEBUGEATER does not equal BUGEATER    !!!!!!!

I only used hayneedle one time because of the sales tax. I have checked out Jet but they seemed to be more expensive by almost 50% on the items I was looking for. Hopefully they keep the companies separate so they do not have to charge tax here.

Sure I pay the sales tax from online purchases at the end of the year like everyone does.

Sounds like more call center jobs. If West goes south, they'll probably come largely from there.
