Lululemon, the athletic apparel retailer, is planning to close its distribution center in Sumner, Washington and lay off 128 employees. The decision comes after the company opened a new warehouse near Los Angeles. The closure is part of Lululemon’s strategy to optimize its distribution network and support future growth. Some employees will be relocated to other facilities, while others will be affected by the reduction in positions. The Sumner distribution center is expected to close by the end of the year. Lululemon has significantly expanded its warehouse footprint in recent years to accommodate its rapid growth.
