Last week PFSweb, Inc. announced they anticipate adding approximately 650 jobs to the Allen, Texas economy when they relocate corporate headquarters to Allen sometime during the later part of 1st Quarter 2012. As outlined in the press release on their website and reported by BusinessWire, PFSweb expects to initially add 350 jobs to the local Allen community, then another 300 jobs over the next 10 years.
What type of jobs will be created? Those that support PFSweb’s business services, which their website defines in this way: “Companies partner with PFSweb to launch new online initiatives, enhance or re-platform their current eCommerce offering or streamline their business-to-business operations.” With an array of clients varying from Gerber Childrenswear, Carter’s and OshKoshB’gosh to The Home Depot and TSC Tractor Supply Co. their range is quite broad.
The PFSweb website currently reflects Plano, Texas as US Headquarters with Canadian and European Headquarters as well. Whether or not the employees headquartered in Plano will relocate to Allen remains to be seen as both communities offer many positives for their residents. For example, last year the city of Plano was voted the Safest City in America by Forbes.com for the 2nd consecutive year. Allen also boasts safe city accolades from a City Crime Rankings study based on the FBI’s 2010 statistics report, nationwide Allen ranked 9th overall in the study and was the first city listed in Texas.
Regarding housing for these two cities, the Collin County Association of Realtors reports the following for February 2012: the average home sales price last month for a home in Allen was $203,889 with the average number of days on market of 70 compared to an average sales price in Plano of $254,690 with 84 average days on market.
