Wal-Mart, a nationwide and world-renowned retailer, signed a long-term lease for 1.2 million square feet in the Lehigh Industrial Park VII distribution building at 2785 Commerce Center Blvd. in Bethlehem, PA. 

This online fulfillment center, the company's largest fulfillment center in the United States to date, will employ 350 people while delivering orders in a timelier manner at a reduced cost. The facility will also house electronics, toys, apparel, fitness/sporting goods, and other products that will be available for shipment. Walmart will also serve as the property manager for their new facility. 

The 1.2 million-square-foot building was constructed in 2012 on 86.2 acres in the Lehigh Valley Industrial submarket of Northampton County. It features 142 loading docks, 32-foot clear heights, 4,000-amp heavy power, and seven-inch floors able to support 4,000 pounds per square foot.
