CosmoProf is closing its Lincoln distribution center at 5500 N. 58th Court, a move that will cost 31 people their jobs.

A company that sells professional salon supplies and equipment is closing a distribution center in Lincoln.

CosmoProf, which is owned by Sally Beauty, plans to close the facility at 5500 N. 58th Court next month.

Jeff Harkins, a spokesman for the company, said the closure is due to the company's decision to consolidate its supply chain operations.

Sally acquired the Lincoln distribution center and one in Wisconsin in 2010 when it bought Aerial Company.
