Cosmetics merchant Sephora is planning a 714,000-square-foot distribution and fulfillment center in North Las Vegas that will utilize 400 individuals, the city revealed today.
The Nevada Guv’s Workplace of Economic Development today approved an economic development plan requested by the company, which now prepares to settle lease negotiations for the facility at the Tropical Warehouse, authorities said.
Sephora selected North Las Vegas for its western distribution center after a yearlong search, officials said. Deal with the facility need to be finished by May 2019.
“As we continue our growth plan– particularly in the Western U.S.– it was necessary to us that we develop a new local warehouse that might most effectively supply item to stores in 12 Western states,” Mike Racer, senior vice president of supply chain at Sephora, stated in a statement.
Sephora plans to fill almost all positions with Nevada homeowners and will work with local labor force centers to find certified staff members who might be disabled or veterans, city authorities said.
Sephora’s facility will include a distribution center for retail places and an e-commerce fulfillment center with direct shipping to consumers, along with an attached 20,000-square-foot workplace.
The facility will be located nearby to Amazon’s recently announced 2.4 million-square-foot fulfillment center at the 120-acre industrial park.
“The advancements we’ve executed to make North Las Vegas the most business-friendly city are being recognized worldwide by significant business that are lining up to locate here,” Mayor John Lee said in a declaration.
