Pop culture toymaker Funko moving Everett warehouse operations to AZ

EVERETT, Wash. — Everett’s pop culture toymaker Funko is relocating its warehouse operations to suburban Phoenix.

The move was somewhat expected since Funko leased a massive Arizona facility in October.

Its two current distribution centers near Paine Field will close.

Hundreds of jobs are at stake.

Funko told the Daily Herald it will support its Everett workers during the transition, including possible relocation.

The company’s corporate headquarters are located in downtown Everett.
