Walmart revealed details of a second major warehouse that the retailer plans to build in Central Florida.
An affiliate of the retailer, Walmart East Stores LP, applied September 6 for a permit to build a 592,830-square-foot distribution center on a 146-acre site in Cocoa. The property would have storage for frozen foods, dairy products, deli items, meat, cold produce and dry produce.
The city of Cocoa in Brevard County offered $2.92 million of incentives to Walmart to build the distribution center and employ 239 workers there.
The Canaveral Port Authority owns the 146 acres in Cocoa where Walmart would build. The land is valued at more than $2 million.
