Supervalu to close offices
In Pleasant Prairie, west of Kenosha, 155 jobs will be lost when Supervalu closes its regional office and consolidates from three regional offices down to two — one in Virginia and one in Minnesota. About 40 sales and marketing staff will remain in Pleasant Prairie. The company closed its Pleasant Prairie distribution center in 2013, eliminating 117 jobs. Meijer, which is expanding into Wisconsin, has purchased the Supervalu distribution location and hopes to hire 300 employees as it ramps up for a 2015 Wisconsin launch.
