Pennsylvania, once the Workshop of the World, where big factories made big stuff, is now America’s Warehouse, where shippers import goods through Eastern ports and send them out via free Interstate highways to points South and West.

Wal-Mart says it will open “its largest ever” warehouse in Bethlehem, Pa., in the Spring, and hire 350 workers to ship electronics, toys, guns and other popular items.  Liberty Property Trust says it has leased to Wal-Mart the newly-completed 1.2 million square foot facility at 2785 Commerce Center Blvd.

  1. I believe this a great move on Wal-Mart’s part.Creating 350 jobs for Pennsylvanians is great news.I really enjoy hearing about companies expanding or locating to Pennsylvania.It’s a much needed boost to our economy.
    I hope our elected officals will fix our tax code,including State Rep. Jim Cox (129th dist) efforts to get rid of property taxes( HR76).That way,we will see more great news like this for our state.
