Netflix Inc. will close its Bloomfield DVD distribution center on Wednesday amid dwindling demand for mail-order movies as more and more entertainment is streamed online.
The company cited the U.S. Postal Service changes and company efficiencies in a statement about the closure Monday.
“Netflix has closed the Bloomfield DVD distribution center due mainly to United States Postal Service transportation and service changes, along with increased internal production efficiencies, resulting [in] a small number of jobs lost,” company spokesman Joris Evers told The Courant in a prepared statement. He would not specify how the postal service is hurting business.
The company will continue to offer its paying customers DVD delivery via mail with “the same uninterrupted one-day service as they have in the past,” Evers said.
