MCDONOUGH, GA. — Tory Burch LLC, a women’s accessories and apparel retailer, plans to invest more than $60 million by 2020 for a new distribution center in McDonough, a south Atlanta suburb in Henry County. The distribution center will support Tory Burch’s e-commerce business and is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2017.
