TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A new Walmart distribution center will be built in Topeka, bringing 300 full-time jobs to the city.
Walmart announced plans Wednesday to invest $200 million to erect its largest distribution center in Kansas to Topeka.
The announcement came at a meeting of the city’s Joint Economic Development Organization, which voted to provide up to $1.87 million in incentives to Walmart.
The company said Topeka’s central location in the U.S. was a key factor in the decision. A timeline for hiring new employees has not been set.
