Holmes Responds To Potential TJX HomeGoods Expansion Project In Lordstown
Says new distribution center would create at least 1,000 local jobs

State Rep. Glenn Holmes (D-McDonald) today released the following statement regarding TJX HomeGood’s decision in considering Lordstown, Ohio as their frontrunner for a new distribution center, which is excepted to bring at least 1,000 jobs to the region:

“I am happy to hear that our community is the top choice for a new distribution center that will create good paying jobs for our local residents,” said Holmes. “It’s been a collaborative effort as our entire community has been pushing for TJX to keep Northeast Ohio on their radar. I want to thank the Youngstown-Warren Regional Chamber, our County Commissioners, Congressman Tim Ryan and my legislative colleagues Rep. Mike O’Brien and Sen. Sean O’Brien for their encouragement and positivity in keeping this important issue alive. We anticipate this project would bring economic growth and opportunity for many in our community, and I look forward to hearing the final decision soon.”
