St. Cloud warehouse lays off hundreds of workers as Publishers Clearing House downsizes

Fulfillment Distribution Center plans to lay off 350 employees in St. Cloud this fall when the plant closes.

The center said the Oct. 31 layoffs will come because the center's only customer, Publishers Clearing House, is discontinuing its mail-order commercial business. Publishers Clearing House announced its own layoffs in Jericho, N.Y., late last week, with 156 employees losing their jobs starting in July.

New York-based Publishers Clearing House is known for mailing offers promoting sweepstakes with million-dollar prizes. The company makes its revenue from merchandise and magazine sales. A representative of Publishers Clearing House was not reachable for comment. FDC president Dave Baldwin was also not reachable for comment.
