More than 350 new full-time jobs will be created with the announcement that Walmart plans to open a fulfillment center in Bethlehem to support the company's growing e-commerce business.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett announced the company's plans to open a facility of more than one million square feet during the first quarter of 2014.
"These new jobs will be long-term, dependable jobs for the hard-working Pennsylvanians of this region," Corbett said in a press release.
In addition to hiring 350 full-time employees, Walmart said it expects to add as many as double that number of temporary workers during holiday peak seasons.
"We're excited about this investment in Bethlehem as we continue our growth in Pennsylvania, which has been a tremendous business partner," Joel Anderson, president and CEO of Walmart.com U.S., said in a press release.
