The company says it will spend $3.3 million on a new neon light plant in Louisiana and will add 800 jobs, including 200 in the Louisiana plant, as it opens a new headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla.
The announcement comes just days after Walmart said it would spend $1 billion on a massive expansion in the state, which has seen the fastest population growth in the country in the past decade.
The expansion will add more than 4,000 jobs.
“We will continue to invest in our Louisiana and Florida operations to create jobs in the future, including expanding our existing warehouse and distribution network,” Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said in a statement.
“Our plan to expand our operations in the Sunshine State is a bold one that includes investing in new infrastructure and infrastructure upgrades, such as our new state-of-the-art distribution facility in Jacksonville.”
In July, Walmart announced that it would open a new warehouse in Jacksonville.
