Publix plans to build a new distribution center in Greensboro.
The company will invest $300 million to develop a 350-acre area in East Greensboro. The investment could bring as many as 1,000 new jobs to the region.
“Publix recognizes North Carolina’s commitment to helping businesses and employees thrive, and they trust our workers to fill up to 1,000 new jobs,” North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said in a statement. “We will keep making sure our workforce has the capacity to excel and meet the needs of Publix and other quickly growing businesses in North Carolina.”
Construction is expected to be completed by 2022.
