Sally Beauty to create approx. 40 new positions at Texas headquarters
Sally Beauty Holdings announced plans to expand its investment in North Texas and the surrounding communities. The company is investing in new talent and capabilities in digital commerce, brand marketing and strategy and global sourcing. As part of this effort, approximately 40 new positions will be created at the Company's Denton, Texas headquarters. The new expert capabilities will support both the Sally Beauty Supply retail beauty business and the Beauty Systems Group wholesale distribution beauty business. The Company also announced the planned remodel of approximately 100 Sally Beauty Supply stores in the North Texas region, with stores in communities surrounding Dallas-Fort Worth being upgraded consistent with Sally Beauty Supply's recent concept store test in Las Vegas. An additional 75 stores in communities surrounding the North Texas area will be remodeled or relocated depending on market assessments and negotiations with landlords as part of Sally Beauty Supply's store operations transformation efforts. Finally, the previously announced opening of a new 500,000 square foot automated distribution node in Denton County, Texas, is on track for opening by March 2020. The operation will create 270 new jobs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
