Newegg Planning Indianapolis Distribution Center

NeweggIndyNewegg, an exclusive online-only electronics retailer, is looking to open a new Midwest distribution center in Indianapolis, Indiana, according to the Indianapolis Business Journal.

The proposal, according to the article, is expected to cost $15 million to lease and equip the 800,000 square-foot facility, which will be located in the AmeriPlex business park.

The southern California-based retailer, according to the article, has asked the city for seven-year property tax abatement on the project that would save it $723,522.

Indianapolis will also be the home of the 2014 Operations Summit, an exclusive conference brought to you by Multichannel Merchant for the catalog and operations ecommerce community.
