Walmart Opening $100M North Carolina Distribution Center

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

Today kick starts one of Walmart’s biggest investments into North Carolina in the form of a 450,000-square-foot refrigerated distribution center.

The project’s ribbon gets cut today, one month earlier than builders anticipated, opening the doors to the $100 million facility that the retailer projected will create upwards of 550 jobs, according to The Triangle Business Journal.

Located in Melbane, the facility will be used for both storage and distribution of the retailer’s perishable food products going to Walmart stores in both North Carolina and Virginia.

It is the fourth distribution center in North Carolina, adding to 160 distribution centers total, according to Walmart’s website, with about one million-square-feet of facility space for more than 5.5 billion cases of merchandise.

This latest addition to that production reach is in what could be a burgeoning retail hub, with Lidl having slated its regional headquarters and distribution center in the same city.

As it currently stands, Walmart will receive a $1.1 million incentive grant from the state, The Triangle reports, as well as $4.4 million in local town and county incentives, contingent on meeting its hiring goals which are more than 100 positions higher than originally planned.
