Nordstrom, Inc. will bring more than 300 new full-time jobs to Lancaster County once it establishes its East Coast online fulfillment center in West Donegal Township, Governor Tom Corbett announced today.
Corbett said Nordstrom is scheduled to open its new 672,000-square-foot building, with an additional 470,000-square-foot mezzanine, at the Conewago Industrial Park in the summer of 2015.
The governor said in a news release that Nordstrom will invest more than $79 million to support the new fulfillment center through renovations, site improvements, new equipment and employee training.
The company has also committed to creating at least 369 new jobs within three years, Corbett said.
The Department of Community and Economic Development partnered with Nordstrom on a number of grants, including a $166,050 Guaranteed Free Training grant to be used to train its new workforce.
Additional funding includes a $1,107,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant that facilitates investment and job creation and $1,107,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits.
Nordstrom is an upscale fashion retailer that operates 261 stores in 35 states. It also serves customers through its online store and catalogs.
