As per Jeff Roberts, Chairman, Roland Economic Development Committee, once they receive the goods, they will be broken down and prepared for shipments to their varied stores.

Owing to adverse impacts of the world economic downturn on the community, Roberts avers that, Citi Trends will aid in encouraging economic opportunities across the region.

Although, the firm is unaware about the impact of economic downturn on the region's economics, he and the firm are excited, with respect to the, help they will be providing by generating 200 plus jobs and giving out more than $5 million in the form of wages.

Currently, Citi is working engineers and no set date has been announced for setting up of the applications and the hiring process, informed the Roland Chamber of Commerce.
