EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Harry & David is restarting its winter-season call center in downtown Eugene.

The Medford-based mail-order food company had a seasonal call center in Eugene for more than two decades before shutting it down in 2010.

A company official tells The Register-Guard (http://is.gd/2wZZmq) the company plans to hire about 750 workers to take phone orders from November through the winter holidays.

Wages will start at $9 an hour, and employees will get a 30 percent discount on online purchases.

The company is updating the 25,000 square feet it leases with fresh paint and carpet, and workers are setting up computer stations, servers and telecommunications connections.
