Etna, Ohio -- Ascena Retail Group Inc. has opened its new 880,000-sq.-ft. shared services office complex and national distribution center in Pataskala, Ohio.
The 120,000 sq. ft. of office space will accommodate Ascena’s Shared Services Associates who serve all five of Ascena’s retail brands: Lane Bryant, Justice, Maurices, Dressbarn and Catherines in areas such as information technology, sourcing and centralized procurement. Additionally, the 760,000-sq.-ft. distribution center will serve all of Ascena’s retail brands, transitioning the final brand in early fall. The facility will be home to 850 associates.
In January 2013 Ascena announced its plan to build an office space adjoined to the existing Distribution Center to house its Ohio-based Shared Services Associates. The new building features an onsite Café, Fitness Center, Coffee Bar and collaborative work spaces.
