Governor Laura Kelly today toured the construction site of a new Walmart distribution center in Topeka, which will create 300 full-time jobs over the next five years.
When complete, the center will be the largest of its kind in the state – and will ship goods to Walmart customers and retail stores across the country.
The below photos from the Governor’s visit to the distribution center are available for media use:
