Online clothing retailer Lulu’s to create over 460 new jobs in Palmer Township

The predicted $6 million, 250,000 square foot project is expected to create over 464 jobs over the next three years.

Headquartered in Chico, California, Lulu’s was founded in 1996 and offers apparel, shoes and accessories designed for young women.

Lulu’s co-founder and CEO Colleen Winter said that the decision to expand into Palmer Township was made in order to improve shipping windows to customers throughout the country.

“At Lulu’s we are committed to delivering an unparalleled customer experience, and in today’s world that means getting our clothing and accessories out to our customers as soon as possible,” Winter said.

The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, a group of economic development professionals who work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania.

Lulu’s received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development for $464,000 in job creation tax credits to be distributed upon the creation of new jobs. The proposal also included a $208,800 workforce development grant to help the company train its existing workers.
