Construction of a new New Hallmark Cards distribution center in Liberty, Kansas has begun. The 850,000 square foot extension of the center will be put up less than a mile from the original location. Hallmark Cards has stated that the facility will not only expand its operations but also help them reduce its environmental footprint. It is scheduled to open in the next two years with more than 1,200 full-time employees and 150 seasonal workers.

The New Hallmark Cards distribution center will also increase the company’s presence by 50%. A company executive said the expansion will bring some smaller operations in the Kansas City area operating from buildings rented from Liberty.
