Online car retailer closes central Indiana refurbishing site

Success - Article sent! close

WHITESTOWN, Ind. -- An online car retailer has closed a central Indiana site that it opened a couple years ago with plans to hire more than 200 workers.

New York City-based Vroom Inc. started operations in late 2015 at the 500,000 square-foot fulfillment center in Whitestown, near Interstate 65, just northwest of Indianapolis. The company said it planned to refurbish up to 2,500 vehicles at a time for resale via its website.

Boone County Economic Development director Molly Whitehead tells the Indianapolis Business Journal that the company notified her a few weeks ago about the closure and didn't give a date on possibly resuming work.

The company said it made facility adjustments to improve profitability. Officials say Vroom never qualified for up to $3.3 million in state tax credits.
