“This announcement is tremendous news for Tulsa County and the entire region,” said Commissioner Smaligo. “Thousands of jobs will be created both directly and indirectly due to Macy’s investment here. This is a great day for the economy of the Tulsa region.”
“A Macy’s fulfillment center in the Tulsa area will be an economic boon for the entire region. It’s an honor for the Cherokee Nation to be a major partner in this project through a half a million dollars in financial incentives and employee recruitment,” said Principal Chief Baker. “The ripple effect of this economic growth will be felt across northeast Oklahoma, and well into the 14 counties of the Cherokee Nation. TheCherokee Nation already employs 9,000 people in this region, and indirectly supports another 5,000 jobs. This is yet another way we are helping to expand our economic footprint in northeast Oklahoma, which helps Cherokees citizens and all citizens of Oklahoma. We are proud to have been an important partner in bringing this project to Oklahoma.”
