LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) — Personal care and beauty retailer Sephora has announced plans to expand its distribution center in Northern Las Vegas.
Sephora was approved for government incentives Thursday at a meeting of the board of directors of the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOOD).
The release from the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance (LVGEA) says the retailer operates a 715,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution facility in North Las Vegas that carries e-commerce and online ordering to most of the western United States.
According to GOED, the expansion will add 147 jobs within five years and the facility will also be able to fulfill store orders in the region.
“Since opening in 2019, Sephora’s distribution center in Las Vegas has been critical to the accelerated growth of our US business,” said Mike Racer, Senior Vice President, Supply Chain at Sephora. “The team’s performance over the past few years has been incredibly strong and is a clear testament to the area’s favorable business environment and robust talent pool. We will continue to build and invest in this facility, and we are grateful for our trusted partnership with the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance to advance our work.”
The LVGEA says the group originally helped Sephora file for tax cuts for moves in 2018, “which was a key factor in the company’s decision to move to Southern Nevada,” the release said.
