Wayfair is opening a call center at a former Corning Incorporated building on Daniel Zenker Drive in Big Flatts.

It's an e-commerce company that sells home goods. 

The new company will bring 450 jobs to the area, helping the 19 hundred people who are unemployed in Chemung County.

The Southern Tier Economic Growth President says it's a good paying job that provides quality benefits.

"It's a quality employer, and we're very excited," said Mike Krusen, the Southern Tier Economic Growth President. "It's a very important shot in the arm for our community, shot in the arm for our economy here in the Southern Tier. We're looking forward to them getting started."   

The company already started posting supervisor jobs online.

And there will be job fairs within the next couple of months.
