165 Jobs Coming to Amarillo

AMARILLO, TEXAS - Amarillo's unemployment rate should be a little lower soon.

The local major employer Toot-N-Totum is adding five new mega-stores across Amarillo. Everything involved with the $10 million project is being done locally --- from financing through Amarillo National Bank to an Amarillo architect that designed the buildings.

The company estimates they'll temporarily hire 80 contractors to build the projects starting in February. And on top of that, they'll have 85 new positions in the stores.
