Sioux City, Iowa firm to buy closed postal center

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — The Sioux City distribution center that the U.S. Postal Service closed last fall won’t stay empty for long.

A local company that sells animal feed and nutrition products wholesale, Consumer Supply Distributing, wants to buy the building for future expansion.

The company, which employs about 70, plans to convert the postal building into its distribution center. Then Consumer Supply’s existing building could be used entirely for manufacturing.

On Monday, the City Council will consider offering the Consumer Supply tax breaks for buying the building if the North Sioux City, S.D., based company meets certain goals.
