MARIETTA, Okla. (KTEN) — The Dollar Tree Distribution Center in Marietta — one of Love County's biggest employers — will not reopen "in the foreseeable future," according to a company spokesperson.

The facility's more than 450 employees will be paid through June 22; then will receive severance packages and benefits.

The decision follows extensive damage to the sprawling warehouse from the April 27 EF-4 tornado.

Here is the full statement from a Dollar Tree company spokesperson:

"As you have seen from the images, our Marietta Distribution Center (DC) was demolished following the tornados that swept through the community in April. Given the facility cannot be reopened in the foreseeable future, we met with our DC team recently to share the incredibly difficult news that the warehouse will close at this time. Associates will receive pay continuation through June 22, in addition to support including severance packages, benefits and access to our Emotional Wellbeing Solutions resources. We are incredibly grateful for this remarkable team and we remain committed to supporting them through this challenging time. While we hope to have a Distribution Center to welcome associates back to in the future, we are still assessing our go-forward options. As proud members of the Marietta community for more than 20 years, this region remains extremely important to the Dollar Tree family and to our broader supply chain network."
