Greensboro City Council approves $1.6 million in incentives for Lollytogs

The company plans to bring 116 new jobs to the area and invest $57.3 million.

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Greensboro City Council has approved $1.6 million in economic incentives for Lollytogs Ltd.

The company plans to bring 116 new jobs to the area and invest $57.3 million. The company manufactures children’s clothing.

Lollytogs wants to establish a new warehouse and distribution center. It could possibly move into a new facility on North Summit Avenue in Greensboro.

Lollytogs designs and manufactures children's clothing under the brand names "French Toast", "Healthtex", "Detour" and "@School". It also produces clothes for other brands including adidas, Carhartt, Lee School and Pelle Pelle.

The Guilford County Commission will hold a public hearing Thursday at 5:30 p.m. for its own set of incentives for Lollytogs.

If approved, the commission would pay $1.8 million as part of the incentives deal.

However, Lollytogs still has to make a final decision to accept the incentives and move to Greensboro. It's not clear when that decision will take place.
