Editorial: By moving here, retailer banks on area’s workforce

Last week Greenwood got some truly beautiful news. A cosmetics retailer plans to open a distribution center in the city that will add more than 500 jobs over the next five years.

ULTA Beauty of Bolingbrook, Ill., is spending $51.6 million to lease and buy equipment for a more than 670,000-square-foot distribution center in the Southpoint Business Park. The facility, which will supply hair care products, perfumes and cosmetics to 400 retail stores and fulfill online orders, will be the city’s largest single-tenant building.

ULTA has its own line of beauty products but also sells Clinique and other makeup brands at its 675 stores, including four in the Indianapolis area.
