More Good Vera Bradley News for the Fort Wayne Area

Hey Fort Wayne readers, I have some great news!  Vera Bradley is opening another production facility, this one in New Haven.  The company has hashed out plans to lease the Nishikawa building on Adams Center Road, and will add 490 new jobs over the next two years.

I drive past the Nishikawa building all the time, and think to myself, what a waste!  Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe the building is less than fifteen years old.  Funny thing...my husband actually got a job there when Nishikawa first opened.  He only stayed about two weeks, because a much better job offer came along, and thankfully, he took it (especially considering Nishikawa's short stint).  But now, Vera Bradley is moving in!  I'm sure you will agree - our economy can use all the help it can get, especially with the migration of good manufacturing jobs out of the city, out of the state, and out of the country!

This is not only good news for Fort Wayne/New Haven - it's good news for anyone who loves the quality of Vera Bradley products, and the fact that the majority of their products are made here in the U.S.A.  Personally, I wish that ALL their products were made here in the United States, but unfortunately, they are not.  To me, a sure sign of quality is that little tag that says "Made In America". 

Well, I am glad to hear there will be more Vera Bradley handbags, luggage and other accessories produced here...
