A $33 million Home Depot distribution center slated for McCalla, Ala., is underway, according to a report in the Birmingham (Alabama) News.
The company held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site earlier this week, according to the report. The site reportedly received about $2.2 million in tax breaks from surrounding Jefferson County, Ala.
The site will encompass 657,000 square feet on a 70-acre site and initially will employ around 214 people. The facility is expected to be finished by the end of 2008.
The retailer is planning a similar facility in Monroe, Ohio, as well. There, Home Depot recently won approval for a $33.9 million, 657,000-square-foot facility.
