PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A company executive says an online home furnishings retailer is on track to hire 1,000 workers for its operations opening this summer in Maine.

Liz Graham, Wayfair’s vice president for sales and service, tells the Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/1ORqHhy ) that the company plans to open its sales and customer service operation in Brunswick next month and another operation in Bangor in July.

Graham declined to say how many employees have been hired or offered jobs but says the pace is strong enough for the company’s plans. The spots are largely in sales and customer service.

The company is based in the U.S. but has expanded to Europe. It expanded to Canada this year.
