Chanhassen-based My Pillow moving 200 jobs from Carver to Shakopee

Founder Mike Lindell tells the Chaska Herald he plans to move his growing pillow manufacturing plant across the river. His decision to leave Carver comes after given several months to get in compliance with a conditional use permit issued in March. “It would have cost me just under $500,000 to get in compliance. That would have put me out of business," said Lindell.

Shakopee Mayor Brad Tabke tweeted a welcome message to My Pillow on Wednesday, the Shakopee Patch reports.

In June, Lindell told the Business Journal he predicts sales will reach $150 million this year, up from $3 million just two years ago.

The Business Journal also reports My Pillow is launching its own stores. It opened a location in Rosedale Center and has seven other retail stores in the works.
