Walmart to Open $41M Distribution Facility in Shepherdsville, Kentucky

by Camren Skelton

SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY. — Walmart will invest $41 million to open a new distribution facility in Shepherdsville, a city roughly 20 miles south of Louisville in Bullitt County. The Arkansas-based retailer will lease a 720,000-square-foot building within Velocity 65 Trade Center, an industrial park located off Interstate 65 along Velocity Way. The center will create 400 full-time jobs upon opening later this fall, and will eventually employ several hundred temporary workers, including seasonal employees. The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority has preliminarily approved Walmart for tax incentives up to $3 million through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based incentive allows the company to keep a portion of its investment over the agreement term through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets. Indianapolis-based Browning Investments is the developer and owner of Velocity 65 Trade Center.
