Gap Inc., a global retailer offering clothing, accessories and personal care products, plans to expand its operations in Groveport investing approximately $100 million and creating 600 new jobs. Hiring for merchandise handlers and management positions will begin in 2020.
Gap Inc. will construct a new 420,000-square-foot warehouse adjacent to its existing 950,000-square-foot facility at 6001 Green Point Drive in Groveport. This additional space will allow the company to increase daily output to support its growing online business.
“Gap Inc. is an important employer for the Groveport community, and we’re thrilled the company’s global success will bring 600 new jobs to the region,” said Jeff Green, Groveport assistant city administrator. “Groveport provides the right business environment and talent pool to assist in the company’s continued growth.”
Green said Gap Inc. anticipates breaking ground on the warehouse in the spring.
“The Ohio Tax Credit Authority granted them a 1.45 percent Job Creation Tax Credit,” said Green. “They will be eligible for property tax abatement for the new structure, but no other credits are being offered for the expansion.”
