The Hudson Bay Company will move its entire North American information technology operation to St. Louis, adding 137 new jobs to existing workforce.  Company officials announced yesterday that they would expand their IT center to three floors at their current location on North Broadway.  

Hudson Bay officials credited the quality of the St. Louis workforce and city incentives including tax breaks tied to the number of jobs added by the company.  The center began operating in St. Louis in 2007, and the expansion will consolidate some jobs that are now done in Toronto.
