Ferrara Candy is moving its corporate headquarters and 400 jobs from Oakbrook Terrace to the Old Main Post Office next year, becoming the second major corporate tenant to commit to the mammoth refurbished building straddling Congress Parkway. The candymaker, known for its Lemonheads and Atomic Fireballs, today announced the relocation plans, confirming Crain's previous reports that it was moving to the city.
