Can I collect unemployment if my job is being relocated?

I live in Washington State. I was hired to and am currently working in a satelite office. My employer is closing the satelite office and has offered me a job, at the same pay rate, which is a 2 hr commute to and from my home and current town of employment. If I choose to not take them up on their offer because I don't want to move and the commute will be unreasonable, can I collect unemployment benefits until I find another job closer to where I live?

Yes, this is usually a good reason to collect unemployment, but just to be sure because when one talks about mileage or pay cuts .. it's always nice to find a precedent which defines a threshold.

Check Washington State precedents
