March 31. Macy’s will invest more than $584 million to build its first automated fulfillment center in China Grove, creating 2,800 new jobs in Rowan County.

Macy’s operates one of retail’s largest e-commerce businesses integrated with a nationwide footprint of stores and fulfillment centers. The retailer will build a 1.4 million square-foot automated fulfillment center to ship orders directly to customers nationwide, accounting for nearly 30 percent of the retailer’s digital supply chain capacity once fully operational.

State of the art

“This state-of-the-art facility is a significant milestone for Macy’s, Inc. as we invest in strengthening our omnichannel ecosystem. It will support growth of our business as a leading omnichannel retailer,” said Dennis Mullahy, Macy’s chief supply chain officer.

Salaries for the new positions will vary, but the project could create a potential annual payroll impact of more than $93 million per year for the region.

The NC Dept. of Commerce led the state’s eco-devo efforts.


“We are delighted to welcome Macy’s and its state-of-the-art facility to North Carolina,” said Gov. Roy Cooper. “When you combine our robust transportation network with our skilled workforce and great quality of life, economic development wins like these will continue to be celebrated statewide.”
