Mebane, N.C. — Walmart announced Tuesday it plans to open a grocery distribution center in Mebane within the next three years that will provide 450 jobs.
The facility will serve about 120 Walmart stores in North Carolina and surrounding states, according to a news release from Gov. Pat McCrory’s office. The company said it will invest more than $100 million in the project.
Salaries will vary by job function, but the average annual pay for the new jobs will be $35,374 plus benefits. The Alamance County average annual wage is $34,858.
Walmart has qualified for a grant of up to $1.1 million from the state’s One North Carolina Fund, which provides assistance to companies to attract business to the state. The company receives no money upfront and must meet job and investment targets to obtain the funds.
