MARION - After setting mostly vacant for the past 12 years, one of the largest distribution centers in Southern Illinois reopened today.

Over a dozen employees made their way to the former Circuit City Distribution Center on Route 13 this morning for training.

They will be working for ReaderLink, a US book distribution company which is now a tenant of the building.

Man-Tra-Con Corporation, a Marion employment agency, will be hosting additional job fairs in the future once more positions become available.

They hope to eventually bring over 200 jobs to the region.
