PRYOR, Oklahoma -- The Cherokee Nation is working with Walmart in a partnership to inspect televisions that have been returned to Walmart stores to determine if they are in working condition and have all their parts.
Saleable items would then repackaged by the Cherokee Nation at its facility in the MidAmerica Industrial Park in Pryor.
Those repackaged TV's would be sold to online auction or liquidation companies. Once a consumer wins a bid, Cherokee Nation Business will ship the repackage television directly to the buyer.
"This division is a great example of the Cherokee people's determination for success and our willingness to work hard," said David Stewart, CEO of CNB. "Over the past decade, we've created thousands of new jobs and established our Nation as perhaps the most vital economic development engine in the region. The continued creation of new jobs gives our citizens the opportunity to provide for themselves and for their families, so that our Cherokee culture may continue to thrive."
The Cherokee Nation recently opened the 143,000-square-foot distribution center in Pryor and with the Walmart partnership, CNB looks to immediately hire 10 to 12 additional employees.
"To have the opportunity to do business with a company of Walmart's magnitude speaks highly of our capabilities and our professionalism," Stewart said. "We are hopeful that this product line can develop into future opportunities and more job opportunities for the Cherokee Nation."
