Distribution Center Set to Close

PITTSTON TOWNSHIP — Officials from a distribution center in Luzerne County tells Newswatch 16 the facility is shutting down.

Managers of Penguin Random House said the company is closing its operations in Pittston Township.

The book publisher said their plan is to close the place by February of next year.

Penguin Random House would not tell us how many people work at that distribution center.

      Kat, this closing is not because of those electronic books. Penguin Random House will continue to manufacture and distribute paperback & hard cover books, just not in Pittston, PA or Kirkwood, NY. Penguin Random House is closing both former Penguin distribution centers and keeping both former Random House warehouses open. Hmmm, I thought it was a merger not a takeover?
