Cheyenne, Wy – WalMart Corperation will invest over 60 million dollars in Laramie County to build a new distribution warehouse on the edge of Cheyenne. It should create 600 new jobs.
"This is the culmination of a process that started just over three years ago and has involved some courageous decisions by the LEADS Board of Directors and superb cooperation among State, County and City governments and their staffs. They have been wonderful to work with," said Randy Bruns, Cheyenne LEADS CEO.
The company will begin construction in LEADS' North Range Business Park within a few months, concurrently with LEADS construction of required water, sewer and roadways in the yet-undeveloped business park. Phase I of the business park will be completed in late 2006. The distribution center is expected to become operational in spring of 2007.
