OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - Hy-Vee will permanently discontinue filling orders at its Aisles Online Fulfillment Centers, a company spokesperson said on Friday.

The change goes into effect the week of March 23.

"We are listening to our customers and they are wanting a full assortment of products, personalized shoppers and same-day pick up at the store, which we are unable to fully provide when we process orders at a fulfillment center," a company spokesperson said in a statement.

Hy-Vee says fulfillment center operations will be transferred to their retail stores later this month. With the change, customer orders will be fulfilled at their local Hy-Vee store.

Hy-Vee says employees were given 60 days notice, and the company is working to help staffers find other jobs. It's unclear how many employees are affected.

The supermarket chain had fulfillment centers in Omaha, Des Moines, Kansas City and Eagan, Minnesota.
