Walter Drake employees get to stay put
Miles Kimball Co. is shutting down its Las Vegas call center on March 16 and moving more than 100 jobs to Oshkosh, Wisc. With the move, all 700 of Miles Kimball's full-time employees will be in Oshkosh with the exception of the 20-person Walter Drake catalog design, layout and merchandizing operation in Colorado Springs. Blyth Inc. paid $53 million for Walter Drake in 2004, then merged the catalog company into Miles Kimball and fired 350 workers here.
