The Children's Place Retail Stores Inc announced that it plans to relocate its rapidly growing e-commerce business from its Secaucus, New Jersey distribution center to the Company's Southeast distribution center in Fort Payne, Alabama in June 2009.

"Our e-commerce sales increased by approximately 60% this year on top of a 35% increase last year, and we have outgrown the available space in our Secaucus headquarters building," commented Mark Rose, Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer for The Children's Place. "By moving the e-commerce business to our Southeast distribution center, we expect to be able to fully automate our fulfillment operations and have ample room to expand in the future as the online business continues to grow."

The Company announced the move to its e-commerce employees earlier this week. Approximately 350 positions at the Secaucus facility will be eliminated by the planned move.

The Children's Place Retail Stores, Inc. is a leading specialty retailer of children's merchandise. The Company designs, contracts to manufacture and sells high-quality, value-priced merchandise under the proprietary "The Children's Place" brand name.
